Crossrail 2

Crossrail 2 should bring many benefits to Wimbledon. It will relieve pressure on services to Waterloo, reduce journey times into Central London and beyond, give more local people job opportunities within a 45 minute commute and attract more businesses and jobs to Wimbledon itself by regenerating the town centre. 

However, I want to ensure that Crossrail 2 brings as little disruption as possible to Wimbledon during its construction. I believe that TfL’s current route option does not look like the best solution for Wimbledon and will lead to the destruction of much of the town centre. 

Residents have also been understandably frustrated that only one option was presented for consultation. That’s why I have been lobbying TfL to consider and present other options, including a tunnel under Wimbledon Station. 

 

UPDATE: Crossrail 2 consultation delayed
