Brent Cross West was supposed to be the penultimate station (the terminus being Hendon) on the northern prong of West London Orbital, a railway scheme promoted by Transport for London. This is no longer possible (more on this topic coming very soon). The proposed terminus on the southern prong is West Hampstead Thameslink.
Brent Cross West (formerly Brent Cross South / Thameslink / Parkway) is a planned railway station on the Thameslink route on the Midland Main Line. It will serve Brent Cross and the northern parts of Cricklewood and Dollis Hill areas of north London and the proposal is part of the Brent Cross Cricklewood development, which also sees an investment to Cricklewood station further down the line. The station is set for opening in 2022.
