Old Oak & Park Royal Connectivity Study
Old Oak Common is located in west London, with several rail junctions and surrounding depot land. In the coming decades it is set to change dramatically, as the site is strategically located for an interchange between Crossrail and HS2. A development of 55,000 new jobs and 24,000 new homes will capitalise on this new transit hub.
Alan Baxter’s role was to provide a walking, cycling, streets, and public realm strategy for both Old Oak and Park Royal, working with the architects 5th Studio, and transport modelling consultant Martin Wedderburn.
We modelled the new street network to assess which links were key for the development and responded to the strengths of the existing urban fabric. There was also high level engineering feasibility work with regards to certain key locations.
