Suberhub & Waste Transfer presentation at Crown

Barnet Council are inviting everyone to come to the Crown on January 31st, to see their plans for a road/rail aggregates+waste superhub and a waste transfer facility. We can even discuss the plans. Invite below.  

They call it an “enhanced and modernised rail freight facility” as if they’re just replacing an existing rail freight facility on the site and making it better. They’re not. They’ve evicted about 50 small businesses, which weren’t handling rail freight at all. They want to build a road/rail facility there instead. Most of the freight will be carried away by road and the rest will be brought in by road, totalling 452 HGV movements every weekday. They’ll bring aggregates – gravel, sand, crushed stone and so forth – by rail, stockpile it and load it into trucks and they’ll bring construction waste in by truck, pile it up and load it onto trains. This proposal will not “enhance” Cricklewood.

We’re going.

BACKGROUND:

 

The Brent Cross Cricklewood development is Barnet Council’s most significant growth and regeneration programme.

 

The £4.5 billion regeneration scheme is one of the biggest in Europe with a vision to create a thriving town centre with attractive, high quality homes and green spaces. It will deliver a modernised and expanded Brent Cross shopping centre, new high street with local shops, restaurants and offices, 7,500 new homes and up to 27,000 jobs.

 

The Thameslink station quarter will be delivered by Barnet Council in partnership with Network Rail. It will bring a number of major transport infrastructure improvements for the area. The new Brent Cross West station will link to Kings Cross St Pancras in under 15 minutes.

 

Other infrastructure works will enable the new station’s construction including an enhanced and modernised rail freight facility, a replacement state of the art waste transfer station, new rail sidings and a new bridge for vehicles and pedestrians across the Midland Mainline train line.
