The leader of Brent Council has expressed interest for [sic] a future Crossrail link between Old Oak Common and Wembley.
The Crossrail link between Old Oak Common and Wembley was called for by Councillor Muhammed Butt in response to research reportedly showing that London's economy is spreading outwards from the centre.
The newly-named Elizabeth Line will link London's west and east sides, with the line starting from Reading and ending at Shenfield.
Cllr Muhammed Butt spoke at an event at the Bilfinger GVA offices in central London on Friday (February 26) 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 including Councillor Julian Bell, Leader of Ealing Council and London's Deputy Mayor for Policy and Planning, Sir Edward Lister [Airmiles Eddie] as well as representatives from Bilfinger GVA who presented their research on the changing London economy.
Councillor 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."
