How many Crossrail trains per hour do you expect to terminate at Old Oak Common, even with the 4 trains per hour to Tring on the West Coast Main Line that are currently being considered?

Given the growth of London and the South-East, do you accept that you must aspire to extend those services, if suitable routes can be devised in the years ahead?

The Crossrail Project does not include a new station at Old Oak Common. Plans for a new station on the Great Western Mainline at Old Oak Common are being developed by the HS2 Project.


The Crossrail Sponsors (DfT and TfL) are working with HS2 to review options for Crossrail services to stop at the proposed new station which is forecast to open in 2026. As this work is currently only at the planning stage, it is too early to confirm exactly how many Crossrail trains might stop at Old Oak Common.
