The Shepherd's Bush station is a railway station in the British capital London . It is located near the Central Line station of the same name in the Shepherd's Bush district . They are recorded as transfer points in the tube map, although a walk of around 100 meters has to be walked. The Circle / H&C station Shepherd's Bush Market is around 500 meters away.

Geographically, the station is on the border of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea , as the West London Line predominantly forms the border.

The station is served by trains from the London Overground and Southern , which operate on the West London Line .


Closed and existing stations in the Shepherd's Bush area

Between 1869 and 1940, Uxbridge Road station was located in the same location , and was served by metro trains on the Metropolitan Line . The end of the station came with the German bombing of London in World War II , when the entire West London Line had to cease operations. With the resumption of passenger traffic on the line in 1999, the Uxbridge Road station was not reopened.

In 2005 the planning of the Shepherd's Bush station began under the direction of the then franchise owner Silverlink Metro . The driving force was the Westfield Group , which in the immediate vicinity of the shopping center Westfield Shopping as part of a building development called White City Development built. The Central Line station and the connection between the two were also planned for the construction of the station. Wood Lane Station on the Hammersmith & City Line was also opened for this mall in 2008.

Construction began in 2006 - the opening date was given in 2007. However, this was delayed when it turned out that the distance between the platform and the track was not safety-compliant. Finally, the station was opened to traffic on September 28, 2008. The franchise had meanwhile switched to London Overground .


The station is served by London Overground and Southern:


In the long term, a 15-minute cycle is planned for the London Overground, so the previous train route is to be linked with that of the Gospel Oak – Barking railway line , but this requires construction work in Gospel Oak .
