Why we oppose a coach station at Royal Oak - Labour and Conservatives are united against these plans

  • Transport for London (TFL) are exploring moving Victoria Coach Station to Royal Oak due to the lease expiring and the site being earmarked for Crossrail 2. This site is not suitable for these plans.
  •  In 2014 over 14 million passengers travelled through Victoria Coach Station. Royal Oak and Bayswater do not have the necessary infrastructure to cope with this extra number of people. TfL is proposing to overload the existing transport infrastructure rather than funding the necessary onward travel in a more suitable location. Our Underground, buses and roads will not be able to cope with the proposed number of daily visitors
  • Royal Oak is a residential area and a Coach Station would irredeemably damage the local environment. We pride ourselves on our diverse community, our long standing, multi-generation families, our high streets and our primary schools. Re-locating London’s Coach Station will irreparably impact the nature of Bayswater as well as threaten our high streets
  • Coach Stations are sadly accompanied by anti-social behaviour issues, our police are already stretched, and our community will suffer the negative impact from this development
  • Marylebone Road, leading to the A40, is the most polluted road in London. Adding a coach station would exacerbate the problem of air pollution. We are already located between the A40 and the Bayswater Road, this will suffocate our green streets, affecting our young families and our schools
  • 15,000 school children live and go to school in the local vicinity of Royal Oak station
  • We do not believe the site is suitable in size, access roads or location, a coach station should be located outside of central London
  • We understand that there has been little enthusiasm from developers for the residential tower blocks due to questions about viability. We do not need an empty luxury tower block. These proposed tower blocks may well breach Westminster City Council’s City Plan, created to protect and preserve our neighbourhoods
