Old Oak Common is a planned railway station in Old Oak Common, northwest London, England. The station will be constructed on the site of the Old Oak Common railway depot, approximately 0.5 kilometres (0.3 mi) south of Willesden Junction station, with an announced opening date of 2026. When it is built, it will be one of the largest rail hubs in London.
The new station has been included as a part of the High Speed 2 line from London Euston to Birmingham. The station will provide a major transport interchange with a number of other main line and commuter rail services, including Crossrail and the Great Western Main Line. The High Speed 2 line is below ground level at the Old Oak Common site, with the parallel Great Western Main Line and Crossrail tracks on the surface to the south. Initially, Donseed’s biometric time and attendance system tablets are being used on the development phase of the largest depot in the UK for housing 33 trains and a state-of-the-art 9-track train maintenance building.
Kev Dendy, Marketing and Strategy Director at Donseed, says: “This is a really exciting development and we are confident that Donseed’s biometric tablets will ensure the accurate recording of hours worked on site throughout the lifetime of the project.”
