New Crossrail could go to Clapham Junction, Tooting Broadway, Wimbledon and extend to Kingston, Twickenham and Epsom.
London First have proposed building Crossrail 2 with this proposed route Boris Johnson and David Cameron have been urged to get behind ambitious proposals to bring Crossrail 2 to south-west London. Business leaders have brought forward proposals to bring a next phase of Crossrail to the capital in the 2020s, to be discussed tonight. London First’s proposed route would involve building an underground tunnel from Wimbledon to Tottenham Hale via Tooting Broadway, Clapham Junction, and a number of central London stops.
The lobbying group, chaired by former transport secretary Andrew, Lord Adonis, proposes Crossrail 2 via Wimbledon would include separate branches to Epsom, Chessington South via Surbiton, Hampton Court and Twickenham via Kingston. They also said the need for Crossrail 2 has become greater since the Government decided to press ahead with a new high-speed rail link to Birmingham and the North (High Speed 2, or HS2) – which would put more strain on Euston station.
