[Reposted from July 2013] Boris offers a new London Overground service to Hendon Thameslink, stopping at Brent Cross

As part of the GLA Old Oak Common consultation, Boris is suggesting a new London Overground service from Hendon Thameslink (or possibly Mill Hill Broadway) to Old Oak Common HS2/Crossrail station, in west London.

Services would likely be extended to either Hounslow or Clapham Junction. 

This would allow a 'Brent Cross (London Overground) station', whether or not a Brent Cross (Thameslink) station is ever built alongside it. 

(The outline is of the LB of Brent)

"The Government has announced proposals for a new High Speed 2 (HS2) and Crossrail station at Old Oak, not far from the Brent borough boundary at Willesden Junction, by 2026, potentially making it one of the best connected railway stations in the UK.

"This could give rise to significant potential for economic development, jobs growth and new homes as well as delivering major improvements to accessibility, particularly by rail, to the wider area in and around Harlesden.

"Brent, together with the GLA, TfL and the neighbouring boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham and Ealing, have been considering the potential for regenerating the wider area and are seeking views on a 30-year vision for Old Oak. [Kensington & Chelsea backed out at the last minute.]

"There is an opportunity, up until Friday 6 September 2013, to comment on this vision on the Mayor of London's website.

"View full details of the vision and how to comment on the proposals."
