Crossrail 2 – Consultation on route options
Transport for London are seeking views on Crossrail 2 (what was formerly known as the Chelsea to Hackney route). Two routes are being proposed which, along with the station locations, are only indicative at this stage, but they would have considerably different impact on Hackney and adjacent areas of east London, including the Upper Lea Valley. There’s the Metro option: An underground railway between Wimbledon and Alexandra Palace, and the Regional option which could be a combined underground and overground railway and could operate from Alexandra Palace and Hertford East in Hertfordshire, to various locations in south west London and Surrey.
