The role of transportation and high-speed rail in connecting communities, creating economic opportunities and driving sustainable growth has never been more important.
Old Oak Common in west London is where High Speed 2 (HS2) and Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) meet, making it the best-connected site in the capital and shrinking the time taken to travel between Birmingham and London to just 40 minutes.
At a time when affordable homes are in critically short supply and London is challenged with redefining its cultural and economic role both in the UK and internationally, our transformative Old Oak masterplan tested the capacity for, and provides a full understanding of, the infrastructure required to unlock the potential for up to 25,000 homes and 65,000 jobs in support of inclusive growth.
Our broad vision and ambitious masterplan for this new metropolitan district plays a vital role in ensuring the social, economic cultural and environmental balance of the city. The analysis that this masterplan provided set out the potential ambition for Old Oak Common in an international, national and local context and underpins an implementable programme of development for Old Oak: stitching together former railway lands into a new quarter of the capital only 10 minutes from Heathrow airport and 10 minutes from London’s West End. A series of sustainable local neighborhoods and communities contributing to the accelerated delivery of affordable homes connecting strategic greenspace and waterways.
