Widening of stretch of track will cause closures and disruption that could drive away traders and tourists, says BOP
The future of Camden market, one of London’s top attractions for younger visitors from around the world, will be put under threat by the building of HS2, a report has claimed. Years of disruption caused by work to allow high-speed trains to run through the heart of Camden will cost traders millions and threaten the existence of the market, according to consultants BOP.
HS2 dismissed the report as scaremongering and said it would work with the market to keep visitors coming.
While most impact in the borough will be on housing around the enlarged Euston station, the more popular end of Camden will be hit by work to link HS2 to the existing high-speed rail network as a 200m stretch of the North London line through Camden Town is widened.
BOP said the local “creative economy” – its independent shops, creative industry and clubs and bars – could face losses of more than £600m and lose up to 9,000 jobs if the link goes ahead as planned.
