									High Speed 2 – Old Oak Common
station proposals

Peter Moth – Principal Transport Planner, TfL
  Background

• TfL / Network Rail have put together a case for Overground connectivity at Old Oak Common, and this has gone
  to DfT and HS2 Ltd. We have included a sensitivity test exploring further links to Hounslow / Brent Cross.
  –   BCR in ‘central’ case = 2.6:1

  –   BCR in ‘wider connections’ case = 2.7:1

• Benefits of ‘central’ case include:
  –   forecast 10% reduction in HS2 arrivals at Euston

  –   Substantial reduction in JTs to Richmond, Clapham Jn, Croydon

  –   400,000 additional people within an hour of OOC

  –   150,000 additional people within an hour of Heathrow

• DfT are certainly interested in the concept, but are concerned about:
  –   Additional costs

  –   Interaction with latest station design for OOC

  –   Slippage in the programme

• DfT have commissioned HS2 Ltd to produce a feasibility study, for which TfL are producing business / economic
  case
