Question

London First has proposed that the Crossrail 2 route passes through my constituency, stopping in Seven Sisters, Turnpike Lane, Alexandra Palace and Tottenham Hale which is great news for Haringey as transport links need to be greatly improved. However, the proposed route proposes to go through Enfield without stopping. Will you join me in supporting the need for the route to stop in Edmonton /Enfield if this route proposal is accepted?

The consultation on proposals for Crossrail 2 has just commenced, so I welcome your positive comments.

The regional scheme to which you refer would, in fact, serve all intermediate stations between Tottenham Hale and Cheshunt on the West Anglia Main Line through the Upper Lea Valley Opportunity Area. There are currently no plans to run Crossrail 2 along the route to Enfield Town via Edmonton Green, but a change of train at Seven Sisters would still improve access to the stations along this line.
