Western Portal Development Plan on consultation

Posted: 04 May 2020

The Rail Infrastructure Alliance project team is proposing to update the existing Western Portal Development Plan to include:

  • Additional project land at 1-39 Hobsons Road for proposed rail services buildings and associated works to deliver vital communications and signalling infrastructure for the Metro Tunnel
  • Minor landscaping and design changes along Childers Street
  • Addition of a small area of Childers Street east of South Kensington station into the Development Plan area to enable access to the rail corridor for maintenance as required
  • Flood plain management / protection alongside rail corridor
  • Editorial updates to reflect proposed amendments.

Feedback is invited on the amended Plan from Monday 4 May 2020 until 5pm on Monday 25 May 2020.

On Tuesday 12 May virtual community information sessions were delivered via the Zoom video conferencing platform.
