Hythe Road railway station is a proposed railway station in West London, UK. If constructed, it will be situated on the West London Line, between North Acton and Willesden Junction, within the London Overground commuter rail system. It will be located next to the planned Old Oak Common railway station and will offer interchange between London Overground and other rail services, including Crossrail (the Elizabeth Line) and High Speed 2. It is one of two proposed new stations which will connect with Old Oak Common, the other being Old Oak Common Lane on the North London line.[1]

TfL most recent position, December 2018, states that "subject to funding being secured and further public consultation we would seek permission to build and operate the proposals via a Transport and Works Act order (TWAO). Funding remains a significant constraint in delivering these proposals. We are currently seeking to establish a package of funding that could enable the stations to be delivered by 2026 alongside the new HS2 and Elizabeth line station".[2]


Hythe Road railway station would be situated about 700 metres (2,300 ft) from the mainline Old Oak Common station. Construction work would involved re-aligning the track along a new railway embankment built slightly to the north of the existing line and the demolition of industrial units along Salter Street, land currently owned by the vehicle sales company Car Giant.[3] The station structure will sit on a viaduct, with a bus interchange underneath. The station will incorporate 3 platforms, allowing through services between Stratford and Clapham Junction with an additional bay platform to accommodate terminating services from Clapham Junction.[4]

In October 2017, Transport for London began a public consultation on the construction of two new Overground stations, Hythe Road on the West London line and Old Oak Common Lane on the North London line.[5][3]
