Archant Local Newspapers: "Brent [Cross] light railway campaigners to step up fight if HS2 goes ahead"

Link to Archant 'London24'

"A group of campaigners striving for a light railway line ... have vowed to step up their campaign, should the green light be given for a high-speed rail link from London to Birmingham.

"The campaign group, 'North West London Light Railway' (NWLLR) has said that, should the HS2 scheme go ahead, the likely interchange station at Old Oak Common would provide an ‘excellent opportunity’ to create further links [across Brent, Barnet, and Enfield/Haringey] via a light railway.

"Councillor for Stonebridge, Zaffar Van Kalwala, said the benefits of a light railway line would be ‘undeniable’, and that he would be pressing Transport for London (TfL) to ensure that Brent does not get ‘left behind’.

Hammerson's  Morgan Bone, Director of Corporate Communications, said 'Bugger off'.
