Crossrail 2

Crossrail 2 (previously known as the Chelsea – Hackney line) is a proposed new rail line running through London and into Surrey and Hertfordshire. Proposals for this new railway are being developed by Transport for London and Network Rail.  Crossrail 2 will support the anticipated jobs and homes growth, and address transport capacity issues. In Islington, a Crossrail 2 station is proposed at Angel.

Between 27 October 2015 and 8 January 2016 Transport for London consulted on the route and design of Crossrail 2. A Consultation Analysis report was published in spring 2016, followed by a separate report in the summer responding to the issues raised.
