HS2 offers glimpse of Old Oak Common’s future

HS2 Ltd has released the latest images of its Old Oak Common interchange station, as preparatory works continue at the site.

The station is being designed by a team led by WSP and architects WilkinsonEyre, and is expected to handle 250,000 passengers per day.

Six 450 metre-long platforms will be built for HS2 within a 1km underground box (similar to Stratford International on High Speed 1). The underground station will connect HS2 with Crossrail, with provision for future services to Wales and the West of England. A new public park will be built above them. An above-ground concourse will link the two halves of the station.
