HS2 and CrossRail Site to deliver High-Tech Innovations

The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation which will be the home to both a HS2 and CrossRail station, has joined forces with HypaCatCity to deliver high-tech innovations.

The OPDC was launched by Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, back in April this year to drive regeneration of the site with the aim of embracing technological advances to boost the economy.

The site, which will hold a station handling over 250,000 passengers a day, has teamed up with HypaCatCity to create a strategy embracing the use of smart technologies.

Victoria Hills, chief executive of OPDC, believes the partnership will "explore and encourage technology innovation and smarter approaches to help plan, design, build and finance the UK's largest regeneration project".

The collaboration will look at ways of delivering new developments and parks including exploring how streets can be designed to accommodate technological innovations such as driverless cars.

HyperCatCity has recently opened a smart city accelerator hub which has been backed by organisations including Cisco, BT, KMPG and Innovate UK.
