Old Oak Common is strategically placed such that it can become a transport hub and key interchange between High Speed 2 and Crossrail. This project addresses the need to provide safe and secure interchange and connectivity between the new and existing transport infrastructure.
After the briefing, Group 12 started to collect data to understand the site constraints and opportunities. As part of our further research, a site visit was organised to allow the team to experience the problems of the site and observe both advantages and disadvantages of different routes. A model was produced to estimate the flows in the area and further investigate which corridors should be designed for.
After a very constructive Critical Assessment meeting, the team was ready to choose the key corridors to be designed. With the establishment of a gravity model to estimate flows for three years (2014, 2026 & 2040), a report was produced with our recommendations. The team then started designing the corridors, using case studies like Wembley and the London 2012 Olympics.
