Answered By:

My preferred option for Crossrail 2 is the Regional scheme, which involves connecting the South West Trains suburban network with the Crossrail 2 tunnel. This allows for frequencies to be increased on these lines, but also allows for an increase in capacity on the main line network into Waterloo. 

The current proposals for the Regional scheme envisage services that pass through Worcester Park being connected into Crossrail 2.  However, further operational analysis and modelling with Network Rail will be required to determine the optimum service pattern.
