Brent Cross West
Brent Cross West station, due to open in 2022, will be the first major new mainline station in London in over a decade
As part of the Brent Cross West Thameslink programme there are three work packages, including a new station and associated rail works:
- The new Brent Cross West station: VolkerFitzpatrick was awarded the contract to build the new station in January 2020.
- The replacement state-of-the-art Waste Transfer Station, which will serve Barnet and Camden.
- Train drivers’ and presentation staff centre, replacement sidings and fuel farm.
The Brent Cross West programme will connect Brent Cross Cricklewood to central London and beyond, providing sustainable travel options and a new pedestrian bridge that will provide communities from both sides of the tracks new walking and cycle access across the railway line for the first time since it was built over 150 years ago.
It is essential to unlocking the housing and commercial development of the area. This means new and existing businesses, their employees, and the growing residential community, will have ready access to sustainable transport that falls in line with the rest of the capital. For the first time, communities situated either side of the railway line will have direct access over the railway tracks with plans for a pedestrian access bridge to be built for residents, pedestrians and cyclists.
The new station and associated rail works are being funded as part of a £419 million government funding agreement which Barnet Council has secured through close collaboration with Central Government Partners from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, HM Treasury and the Greater London Authority.
The station received full planning consent from Barnet Council’s Planning Committee on 13 May 2020. Read more here.”
