Crossrail 2

Dear all,

Please find the update I have received from Neil Bullen at LBWF regarding the proposed route of CrossRail.
It's good that any possible threats to the SSSI and to the Lea Bridge Station now seem to be discounted at this stage in the consultation.

However I still think that Waltham Forest is missing out not getting a link to Cross Rail.

Thankyou to Stella and Councillors for having raised this matter with LBWF.

Dear Claire
> Thank you for your recent query.
> The alignment for the new Crossrail 2 line has changed. In the earlier proposal, the line from Hackney came into Waltham Forest with a tunnel portal (where the line emerges from underground) likely to be somewhere in the Lea Bridge area.
> However, in the latest Transport for London consultation, the route alignment has changed and does not come into Waltham Forest at all. After leaving Hackney, the line turns north and emerges from tunnel just before Tottenham Hale station in the London Borough of Haringey. It therefore has no effect on the SSSI in Waltham Forest.
> The revised alignment will also have no effect on the reopening of Lea Bridge Station.

> Kind regards
