Choose a route for Crossrail 2

Crossrail 2 would create a new high-frequency, high-capacity rail line running between south west and north east London.

Transport for London (TfL) and Network Rail (NR) are seeking the views of people in London and south east England on Crossrail 2.

Crossrail 2 replaces an earlier scheme known as the Chelsea-Hackney Line. Crossrail 2 would help to relieve congestion on both the national and TfL rail networks, and support economic development in and around London.

One option, the Regional option would directly affect Seven Sisters and Tottenham Hale stations, especially re commuters from outer London and Hertfordshire who currently pick up the tube here.  They propose that services travel underground to Alexandra Palace, with a potential branch travelling overground into Hertfordshire, using the West Anglia Main Line. This would provide passengers with direct services from Hertfordshire and the Lea Valley to the West End and other areas of London, without changing at Finsbury Park, Tottenham Hale, Seven Sisters or Liverpool Street.

To see details of both options and take part in the consultation, go to the TFL site  or visit www.crossrail2.co.uk, email crossrail2@tfl.gov.uk or call 0343 222 1234.     The consultation runs until August 2.

It will open in 2030….
