Park Royal City: Investment in Infrastructure (although some 1980s music is best forgotten)

Link to London Borough of 
Hammersmith & Fulham web site

"Futurist computer-generated graphics showing how one of Britain’s poorest neighbourhoods could be transformed by the nation’s first high-speed rail super hub have been released.

"To the sound track of ‘We Built This City’ by Starship, the YouTube clip shows how vast swathes of derelict or underused industrial land – around Old Oak Common in NW10 – could be transformed into London’s newest city.

"The ambitious regeneration vision, which has been dubbed Park Royal City, shows 12,000 new homes and businesses and 115,000 extra jobs (40,000 in Hammersmith & Fulham) created around an unrivalled convergence of transport routes in north-west London." [Unlike the expected 29,000 extra cars every day, expected by Barnet Council at the expanded Brent Cross.]
