Studies by Crossrail Ltd. identified Gravesend as the preferred termination point.[further explanation needed] However, the same studies found Slade Green station to be the outermost station with sufficient capacity to support Crossrail. Rail Freight studies seeking to extend traffic in the opposite direction, with a planned multi modal distribution centre between Slade Green and Dartford, meant that extending Crossrail beyond Slade Green would require additional tracks and possibly a viaduct. From 2009, the commuter route through Slade Green has been safeguarded for future Crossrail extensions.
