Answered By:

The immediate priority for enhancing connectivity at Old Oak Common is to create new connections to the existing Overground network. Following a public consultation last year, and extensive technical analysis, TfL have decided to progress the option which would see two Overground stations delivered at Old Oak Common (Option C). There are no proposals for a new station on the Dudding Hill Line.

However, should a strong case be made to provide a new station on the Dudding Hill Line, and supported by Network Rail, then the proposals that we have identified for a new Overground station on the North London Line would not preclude a connection to the Dudding Hill Line station.
