TfL has published its initial response to the issues raised by the public in the 2015 consultation on Crossrail 2. For Haringey residents, the key issue is whether the railway should be routed via Turnpike Lane and Alexandra Palace, or via Wood Green only.  The response to this question is as follows:

During the 2015 consultation, we presented two options for the Crossrail 2 route between Seven Sisters and New Southgate. One proposed option would route the railway via Turnpike Lane and Alexandra Palace while the other option would call at Wood Green only.

The majority of respondents generally favoured a Crossrail 2 route with stations at both Alexandra Place and Turnpike Lane.

Conversely, the London Borough of Haringey favours a station at Wood Green only, as they feel a station here has greater potential to regenerate the town centre and the economic benefits would be greater. We are carefully assessing both options in light of feedback

from the consultation and further design work is being carried out so that a preferred option can be agreed, which will inform a further period of public consultation.
