Description

Crossrail 2 is a proposed new rail infrastructure project, aiming to alleviate further crowding and congestion across London. The proposed central route will provide a link between Wimbledon in the South and New Southgate and Tottenham Hale in the North with a provision for an Eastern branch towards Hackney Central. It will provide interchange with multiple London underground, London Overground, Crossrail 1, national and international rail services. It is expected to increase significantly the capacity of the regional rail network and reduce the journey times supporting the population growth of the City of London.

Proposed route according to public consultation autumn 2015
