Could Another Overground Platform Be Squeezed In At Clapham Junction Station?

Clapham Junction station has two Overground platforms, 1 and 2, at the Northern side of the station.

This Google Map shows the platforms at the station.

Platforms 1 and 2 are continuous at the top, with one on the left. Note that Class 378 trains are in both platforms.

These pictures show Platforms 1 and 2 and the space behind.

I don’t know whether another platform could be fitted in, but I suspect, if London Overground needed another one, then with some reconstruction and movement of the various cabins and boxes, then one could be built.

  1. Hello,

    i alswyas heard it was possible but very expesive due to stability issues of the wall towards street level. It should be completely rebuild, sot the overground option was a lot cheaper to realize.

    The next three pictures show the construction of the Banana Arches. These are in very poor condition. Although not clearly evident in these pictures, there is significant corrosion in the downpipes and the track bed trough. There is also clear damage to the retaining wall, as water penetrating the walls through the corroded metal works expands when it freezes leaving voids in the mortar.
