East Croydon to Selhurst Junction Capacity Enhancement Scheme

Phase 2 Consultation

Network Rail is proposing to upgrade the Brighton Main Line – one of the busiest and most congested routes in the country – to provide more reliable, more frequent and faster services.

Key to the upgrade are major proposals to remove the most challenging bottleneck on Britain’s railway network, the ‘East Croydon to Selhurst Junction Capacity Enhancement Scheme’ (the Scheme). 

Unblocking the Croydon bottleneck

We are now speaking with passengers and the public about our proposals and would like to hear your views.

At the time of this consultation, the Scheme is unfunded. While we develop our plans, we will continue to build the case for investment in this Scheme and in this vital growth corridor.

This website provides information on the Scheme, the potential benefits, how we propose to build it, the planning process we will go through and how you can have your say.
