Crossrail 2 And The Chingford Branch Line

The Chingford Branch Line will be effected both during construction and after opening by Crossrail 2..

In Rumours Of Curves In Walthamstow, I said this.

But with the design stage of Crossrail 2 well underway, I do wonder, if connecting Chingford station and the related sidings to the West Anglia Main Line, might give Crossrail 2 better options to build the line or provide alternative services, whilst the West Anglia Main Line is rebuilt through the area.

I still think that the Chingford Branch Line will be an invaluable resource to help get the Northern end of Crossrail 2 built.

If the Coppermill Curve is built in the near future, I feel the main reason will be to help build Crossrail 2 and rebuild the West Anglia Main Line to four-tracks.

Once Crossrail 2 is open, I think that the two lines will be connected together at Seven Sisters/South Tottenham. There is a lot of scope for a major passenger-friendly interchange and as it will be a few years after Crossrail, the design will draw on the experience of theearlier line.

Conclusion

The Chingford Branch Line will end up being tightly linked to Crossrail 2.
