West London - Old Oak and Park Royal - ActonThe £26 billion regeneration of Old Oak Common and Park Royal in west London is the next major work In the grand plan. It is one of the top 10 regeneration zones set to be totally transformed in the next 15 years!
The 160-acre wasteland in Acton will be revived by a new £1 billion transport superhub the only HS2 and Crossrail interchange plus a high street linking the station with the £3 billion Imperial College campus.
Key drivers of the OPDC £26 billion regeneration of Old Oak & Park Royal include:
- A dynamic road, rail and air travel transport infrastructure is already in place.
- HS2 will deliver a new £1.3 billion superhub high speed interchange in the heart of the district.
- 7 rail and tube lines will interconnect across the area.
- Park Royal is already recognised as the UK’s prime manufacturing and logistics based district.
- London’s population is projected to escalate to around 11 million by 2050 - residential and commercial growth can only greatly expand to the west.
- West London is already seeing unprecedented inward investment with the expansion of Westfield and Imperial College London at White City.
- The new visionary district will provide up to 4000 new homes and some 65,000 new jobs.
- The district’s commerce is projected to fuel the UK economy by £7.6 billion a year.
- Imperial College London are already expanding their campus facilities at Portal West with two major new sites (30,000 sq.m) in addition to their existing 690 unit Woodward building.
Old Oak Common - Now under construction, the new rail hub will have 14 platforms - with six being built underground to serve the HS2 line, this engineering feat will define it as one of the largest subterranean structures in the world. An overbridge will link to the station's ground level platforms which will be served by the Elizabeth line. The entire station will be encompassed by a vast roof, with its design inspired by the site’s industrial heritage. The new HS2 station will incorporate passenger and retail facilities, providing a high quality and exemplary customer experience for all passengers and visitors to the station. By freeing up capacity on our current railways, HS2 will help take hundreds of lorries off the roads every day as more freight can move to rail. This will improve air quality and help reduce carbon emissions.
- Old Oak Common is scheduled to open in 2026.
- The station complex will be located approximately 850 metres from One West Point - little over 10 minutes walk.
- The station is being designed to accommodate around 250,000 passengers a day - comparable to London Waterloo.
- HS2 will provide up to 18 trains per hour between Old Oak and the North - putting Birmingham Airport at just 31 minutes travel time.
- The hub is projected to contribute to a £15 billion economic boost over the following 30 years.
- Crossrail will operate services into the West End in under 10 minutes and London Heathrow in less than 20 minutes.
- HS2 will help reduce carbon emissions by removing hundreds of lorries from road haulage as freight switches to rail.
