CityAM reported that HS2’s rail hub at Old Oak Common in West London has received planning approval from the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation. It will be the largest new railway station ever built in the UK, with 14 platforms; a mix of six high speed and eight conventional service. It will have a 850m long station box, with a volume to fit 6,300 Routemaster buses. When operational, the station will be used by up to an estimated 250,000 passengers each day. The HS2 rail link will connect with mainline rail services, the Crossrail Elizabeth Line, and the Heathrow Express at Old Oak Common. The station will form the centre of plans to redevelop the whole neighbourhood, with the hope of creating tens of thousands of new homes and jobs.
