Have Your Say On New Tube Line Plan

Consultation on bringing Crossrail 2 to the borough

A consultation is underway on the latest plans for the Crossrail 2 underground line which would include stops at Tooting Broadway and Clapham Junction.

Residents have until July 25th to submit their views online.

A previous consultation gave two options for expansion of the rail network in London - Regional and Metro - with the former getting a more positive response.

The Regional option comprises a new tunnel from Wimbledon to Tottenham, where it would connect to the existing National Rail network to the north and south west of London, enabling direct services into the heart of central London from places such as Kingston and Cheshunt. The route of the Regional option that was subject to the consultation last summer is set out in the map below.

Ravi Govindia, council leader, said: "This scheme is vital to Wandsworth’s future and will bring even more jobs, homes and growth to the borough. It would slash journey times to parts of central London and ease the pressure on some of our most overcrowded rail and tube services."
