Crossrail 2 is the new tube line through Wandsworth and into central London.

Our local station had been planned at Tooting Broadway, but Transport for London (TfL) has discovered difficult ground conditions under Tooting and is thinking of moving the station to Balham.

Tooting was originally chosen as it is more in need of the economic boost and better rail connectivity that Crossrail 2 will bring. However, by moving the station to Balham the cost of Crossrail 2 will be less and surface disruption during construction will be reduced.

Wandsworth Council still believes a station at Tooting Broadway will deliver the maximum benefit to our area – but what do you think?

Have your say: should the station be at Balham or Tooting Broadway?


About Crossrail 2

Crossrail 2 is the proposed full-sized underground railway that will run North-South across London, with stops planned at Clapham Junction and – until this month – Tooting Broadway. It will also stop at Victoria, Tottenham Court Road and King's Cross / Euston.

The new railway will bring huge benefits to our area, cutting journey times to central London, boosting the local economy and reducing the strain on existing overground and Northern line services. It will also unlock thousands of new affordable homes in Wandsworth.

It will also ensure that London remains globally competitive, creating jobs and growth across the national economy, while encouraging people to make greener journeys into and across London.

    Very important to build a rail route northwards from Croydon to meet increasing transport demands to and from central London. There is NO tube line from Croydon (unlike Wimbledon and Richmond) and the ability to connect Croydon – Norbury – Streatham – Balham is essential as Southern Trains cannot cope, and Overground from west Croydon is focussed eastwards.

    Balham already benefits from southern lines to London Victoria. Tooting needs the economic boost and benefit, and it will create more of a destination. Tooting needs it more! The high street is already changing and smartening up and Cross Rail 2 can only help improve Tooting further.
