Brent wants Wembley Crossrail link

26 February 2016

A future Crossrail link between Old Oak Common and Wembley has been called for by the Leader of Brent Council today, in response to research showing that London's economy is spreading outwards from the centre.


Councillor Muhammed Butt spoke at an event in central London today (Friday 26 February 2016) which was held to talk about economic growth in light of research showing that major investment is moving out from central London and is rebalancing London's economy.


He spoke alongside the Leaders of other London boroughs and London's Deputy Mayor for Policy and Planning, Sir Edward Lister, as well as representatives from Bilfinger GVA who presented their research on the changing London economy.


Cllr Muhammed Butt, Leader of Brent Council said: "With the central London economy expanding outwards, we think that a Crossrail link between Old Oak Common and Wembley would make perfect sense and should be brought forward in the future to unlock further opportunities."
