Work item details

We will be moving utility cables and pipes to the north and west of Wormwood Scrubs from late 2020 onwards. A large portion of the activity will be completed by late 2021, although some elements of the work to the west of the scrubs will continue until 2024. We will be carrying out the following activity:

  • Under Track Crossing activity (UTX) – we will divert utilities under the Great Western Mainline railway in the west corner of the scrubs. This will allow space for us to lower Old Oak Common lane in the future
  • Stamford Brook Sewer activity (SBS) – we will be relocating and exiting sewer from the Old Oak Common Station site to the northern part of Wormwood Scrubs. This will allow space on site for us to excavate the station foundations
