“Second Time Around: Capacity Relief at Camden Town station,” with Viki James, Senior Project Manager for Consents & Land, TfL Major Projects Directorates.
In 2004 London Underground plans to rebuild Camden Town station though a Transport and Works Act Order and Conservation Area consent were rejected by both the council and subsequently the DfT, despite having overwhelming support for the need for the scheme.
Over a decade later, with the need for the project ever increasing, TfL have a revised proposal and a plan for the future of Camden Town station. We look at how the lessons from the past will translate into the plans for the future.
