Other White City

A new development at White City will include a new tube station, a National Rail station for Shepherd's Bush, a bus station and associated improvements.

White City is a 40 acre brownfield site which is being developed into a new complex by Chelsfield. A number of associated transport projects are either complete, underway or planned.

Road access

A grade-separated junction has already been completed for the A3220 West Cross Route as the primary road access to the site. This has already been finished to give lorries access to the the site.

London Underground & Rail access

A new White City station for the Hammersmith & City Line will be constructed on the western side of the development, and a new Shepherd's Bush station for the West London Line station will be constructed on the eastern side with associated links to and improvements for Shepherd's Bush Central Line station, which is currently too small for the traffic expected.

The West London Line will only be served during the peak hours due to capacity constraints on the line (see Imperial Wharf station). Hopefully in the future, signalling upgrades will enable to station to have an all-day service.

The former Wood Lane Central Line station is being demolished (with key structures moved to the London Transport Museum's depot in Acton) to make way for the development. The current Central Line depot will also be demolished, with a new underground depot constructed first.

The current Hammersmith & City Line station at Shepherd's Bush might be renamed to Shepherd's Bush West, to avoid confusion with the new Central line / West London line interchange station.

Bus access

A new hub is being planned at White City - a bus station will be situated next to Wood Lane, with associated alterations to the local bus network to take this into account.

Tram access

The proposed West London Tram would terminate at the White City development.
