We answered

Our Ref:          FOI-4275-1718

Thank you for your request received on 26 January 2018 asking for information about any new stations between Angel Road and Ponders End on the West Anglia Mainline.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Information Regulations and our information access policy. We do not hold the information that you require.

As we explained in the 2016 Response to Issues Raised Report, a new station at Pickets Lock, which is in between Angel Road and Ponders End, is not currently included in the proposals for Crossrail 2.

The population of the catchment area (within 1km) is relatively low, and is largely served by existing nearby stations. As such the benefit for the few people who would gain from the station would be more than outweighed by the disbenefit of extended journey times for those on the trains making the additional stop.

As there are no proposals for a new station in this area, we do not have any correspondence to share with you.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
