Review of Crossrail 2 plans after consultation

Transport for London (TfL) and Network Rail will investigate a number of possible changes to the planned Crossrail 2 route from north to south London, following public consultation.

At Dalston, TfL is investigating the feasibility of integrating the Crossrail 2 entrance into Kingsland Shopping Centre, reducing the engineering impact on Bradley Street.

At Angel, a planned worksite at Chapel Market/White Lion Street is to be reduced in size, and TfL is investigating improvements to pedestrian access around the station.

At Clapham Junction, an additional entrance on St John’s Hill could improve access, while at Alexandra Park engineers have found a solution to reduce the size of the planned worksite.

Under current plans a Hybrid Bill could be submitted in 2019, with construction starting in the early 2020s and the first service running in 2033.

    Also Crossrail 2 is likely to take over some of the suburban routes to Chessington, Shepperton, Epsom and Hampton Court in South London and Southwest London and to New Southgate in North London and to Tottenham Hale & extended to Hertford East, Bishops Stortford and Stansted Airport with a 2nd proposed route to Epping via using the Central Line as its a future expansion of Crossrail 2. Plus new dual voltage trains that can run on DC 750v 3rd rail & DC LUL 4th rail and AC 25kv Overhead.
