(d) To modify Southall station to cater for Crossrail services to provide increased capacity, improved facilities, enhanced station integration and interchange, to widen the South Road bridge to facilitate bus movement and a high quality pedestrian environment and to permit high densities appropriate for development in the vicinity subject to improvement of physical infrastructure in the station area.
(e) To provide additional community facilities – including a new community hub comprising a library and health centre, extended schools facilities and a new two or three form entry primary school with community access.
(f) To build up to 2,620 new homes on the Southall Gas Works site by 2026 (out of a planned total of 3,750) with a balance of market, affordable housing and family housing with bigger unit sizes to reflect household characteristics in Southall and the borough’s housing needs, to provide a range of supporting physical, social and green infrastructure and to implement a Low Emission Strategy.
(g) To make junction and wider improvements along the South Road corridor to improve capacity and journey time reliability.
(h) To further explore opportunities for creating a district energy network.
