The planning application for the Old Oak Common HS2 station has been approved by the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation OPDC).
The station, promoted by HS2 Ltd, will have 14 platforms: six for HS2 services and eight for Crossrail, Heathrow Express and Great Western trains.
HS2 expects the station to be a catalyst and gateway for Old Oak and Park Royal, one of the largest regeneration sites in the UK. Plans to transform the wider area around the station, a former railway and industrial site, are being led by the OPDC.
The station will be built within an 850-metre-long box. HS2 Ltd says it is forecast to be used by 250,000 passengers a day.
The station design has been led by consultant WSP, with architectural support from WilkinsonEyre.
A joint venture of Balfour Beatty, Vinci and Systra (BBVS) was awarded the contract to build the station in September 2019. Work should start next month.
