Question

The recent announcement of EU funding to progress proposals for new London Overground Station is encouraging. I agree that connectivity between HS2 and Crossrail is essential to the transformation of Old Oak Common and the regeneration of surrounding areas (including Opportunity Areas in Brent and Brent). This makes it important that the Crossrail spur to Tring stops at both Wembley and Harrow & Wealdstone Stations. Are you supportive of this important connectivity aspect for wider regeneration?

Feasibility work to consider proposals to extend Crossrail services to key destinations in Hertfordshire remains ongoing and as such no decisions have yet been taken on service patterns or station stops. As mentioned in my previous responses to MQ 2015/1267, MQ 2014/4537 and MQ 2015/1020, I recognise that if Crossrail services are extended to Hertfordshire, stops at Wembley Central and Harrow & Wealdstone would be beneficial; improving connectivity and bringing new economic opportunities to North West London.
