Crossrail, the region’s newest high frequency, high capacity railway with three stations in the borough, together with the incredibly exciting Romford Leisure Development. This key project will dramatically renew the area’s cultural offering.
We are in an ideal location for one of Heathrow’s Logistic Hubs. A successful bid will support a growth in employment opportunities for local people and establish a sustainable manufacturing centre.
