Question

You have published unfunded aspirations for a new London Overground service from Old Oak Common, via Brent Cross, to Hendon and, bordering the Colindale opportunity area, to Mill Hill Broadway.

Does the specification for the new Brent Cross station include space for platforms on the Midland Main Line freight tracks for this service, even if platforms were added later?

I assume that you are referring to the Old Oak Overground stations study which did not explicitly include any proposals to run services on the Dudding Hill Line to Brent Cross, but did state that any future passenger services on the Dudding Hill Line would not be excluded. 

That said, the specification for the new Brent Cross station will not include platforms on the Midland Mainline freight tracks.  However, it may be possible to add platforms at a later date, subject to further engineering feasibility.
