HS2 consultation – until September 6, 2013.

For reference, the tallest tower is ~60 storeys
 The much debated project is currently under public consultation.
 
The  plan will completely change Old Oak Common  into  a new city with 12000 new homes and 20 million square feet of office and commercial space. 
Old Oak Common railway station
 
Old Oak Common railway station (or Crossrail Interchange) is to be constructed on the site of the Old Oak Common railway depot, approximately 0.5 kilometres (0.31 mi) south of Willesden Junction station with an estimated opening date of 2026. 
Journey times between London and Birmingham will decrease from 84m to 49, and to Manchester from  128 to 68m. Within London, Canary Wharf in 20 minutes and to Heathrow or central London in 10 minutes (find more here).
 
Not everyone is jumping with joy over this project.  You can consider their arguments at http://stophs2.org/  and  http://hs2actionalliance.org/ 
 
You can reply to the public consultation here.
