What you’ve told us so far
Network Rail first consulted on the Scheme in November 2018.
Feedback received has been used to shape our designs.

“Minimise traffic disruptions at Lower Addiscombe Road / Windmill Bridge”
We have considered this feedback as part of our plans and this consultation includes information about how we would build and install the bridge, most likely commencing over a Christmas period when we know the roads are quieter.
“Maximise development above and around East Croydon station”
We have carefully considered the option of building above the new station. Our current view is that this would take too long to build, would add significantly to the overall cost of the Scheme and would cause an unacceptable level of disruption to train services.
The Scheme does present the opportunity for developments around the site. The developments would be delivered once works are complete and
these options are now being explored.
“Maximise the benefits delivered by the project”
An additional grade separation has been incorporated into the Scheme to further improve rail operations. This change has resulted in a proposed eight track formation between East Croydon station and the Selhurst triangle.
“Minimise construction impacts to passengers and lineside neighbours”
This has steered our design further towards ‘offline’ construction for the railway works and influenced the site logistics design to minimise local lorry movements.
The following pages describe the current operational constraints, our proposals to overcome them and the associated benefits.
