Enfield Town, Walthamstow and Twickenham stations to be redeveloped

Network Rail have teamed up with a property developer to make some money and - if we're lucky - improve the facilities at several stations:

Network Rail and Kier Property Limited (Kier) will work together in equal partnership to regenerate brownfield sites. The initial portfolio of sites are six stations at Enfield Town, Epsom, Guildford, Maidstone East, Twickenham and Walthamstow and a further site at Wembley Cutting and have a gross development value in excess of £500m.
[...]we will maximise the value of the chosen sites, delivering significant passenger benefits and creating a sustainable income stream to improve the railway for years to come. [...] developments are likely to include residential, retail and office accommodation
The press release also mentions redevelopment plans for Euston and Victoria will be announced soon. King's Cross and London Bridge already have schemes on the table, and the plans for Waterloo are ongoing.

Wembley Cutting? Would that be a new station?

Resurrected plan to do a Tesco Tunnel on it, and sell the airspace, I suspect. I remember reading something about it somewhere, possibly MR.
