Old Oak Common Lane railway station

Old Oak Common Lane railway station is a proposed railway station in West London, UK. If constructed, it will be situated on the North London Line, between North Acton and Willesden Junction, within the London Overground commuter rail system. It will be located next to the planned Old Oak Common railway station and will offer interchange between London Overground and other rail services, including Crossrail (the Elizabeth Line) and High Speed 2. It is one of two proposed new stations which will connect with Old Oak Common, the other being Hythe Road on the West London line.[1]

Old Oak Common Lane station would be located about 350 metres (1,150 ft) to the west of the main Crossrail station on Old Oak Common Lane. It is also planned to construct a footbridge to give access to the station from Victoria Road (A4000 road) via Midland Terrace. Interchange with the Crossrail station will be determined by the design of the new Old Oak Common station.[2]

Under the Transport and Works Act 1992, the project will be subject to a Transport and Works Act Order (TWAO) and governmental funding if construction is to proceed. The scheme would also be examined at a public inquiry before it could be approved by the Secretary of State for Transport.[3]

In October 2017, Transport for London began a public consultation on the construction of two new Overground stations, Hythe Road on the West London line and Old Oak Common Lane on the North London line.[4][5] In December 2018, TfL stated that the construction of the two stations would be heavily dependent on securing government funding.[6]

Old Oak Common Lane would be served by London Overground trains running on the North London Line. Additionally, it has been proposed to run trains from West Hampstead Thameslink and Hendon via Old Oak Common Lane to Hounslow by re-opening the Dudding Hill freight line to passenger services.[7] This scheme, known as the West London Orbital, is currently at public consultation stage with TfL.[8]
