Orbital transport ideas: Brent Cross Light Rail - now ALSO Oak Old Common Light Rail

Double click to view stations

Proposals for a new light railway in North-West London received overwhelming support at Brent Council's first meeting of 2011.

The suggested scheme would connect Brent Cross to Park Royal, providing orbital travel across north-west London. It would largely make use of existing freight and abandoned railway corridors. The plans include four stations close to the new Brent Cross Town Centre, providing an alternative to driving for the thousands of new residents and visitors there, and also making Neasden Temple (BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir) assessable via light rail.

The proposed orbital light railway would interchange with every other railway and tube line in north-west London. It could also be diverted to the proposed Crossrail and High-Speed-Two station at Old Oak Common, just south of Willesden Junction.
