Hendon is a town that sits on the NE coast. Its station (NE5) is well served by MRT Northern Line services from the North West area to the North East area.

The town is situated on the B12 road that links Xiiona and Shadowpoint. The town is now the junction with the B121 road to Geneva Bay.

Hendon is also a borough as well as a town and serves Hatch End and Harrow in the same area. Hatch End is owned by GrumpyGoomba9 and Harrow is owned by CondinYT, all of which are friends.

The town of Hendon is owned by London150. He built most of the town himself and established a town hall in the old MRT News building.

Hendon Updates so far

Area: Smaller houses will be building in Hendon and its borough towns. New Cainport Stadium to be rebuilt at the same time.

Roads: The M25 Hendon Orbital Motorway is completed after 5 months of painstaking work to build an orbital around Hendon City. 3 or 4 new junctions will be added to the motorway to incorporate more C roads in case the M25 is closed between junctions for works/incidents or building works.



Hendon has a vast history. It sits on the swamp river and on a lake (the latter being named Hendon Lake). The area around the area was full of hills! Because the B12 road goes through it already, it makes connections to other towns/cities much easier.

When London150 claimed the area (along with NE5 station), he drew out plans in his mind one night and to make it an 'eco' town. Rather than road transport being priority, public transport like metros and trains is key to operate the system. The first section of the Hendon Metro was open between Hendon Mainline (NE5) and Hendon East.

Much of the history is with the lake... being the boats way in and out. When Hendon Bridge opened with the C1 to Hendon Monument, this was probably the first motorway (as destined with the UK Motorways but not with M although it may change in future, keep a eye out on the noticeboard in the town itself) to be built in the Borough of Hendon. . The first tunnel underwater was the Hendon Metro. Named Operation 'Hatch', the line was extended in June 2017. By this time, Hendon had plenty of housing and hotel spaces available.

Hatch End was next to be built by GrumpyGoomba9. This required another couple of tunnels for the C3 motorway to go under the massive hill that separates Hendon from Hatch End entirely. At the time when Hatch End was starting, Harrow was also starting and its town is displayed down below with Hatch Ends description.

In October 2017, the Hendon Metro will take its first opportunity to extend to New Cainport (owned by CondinYT) and also a proposal for the metro to reach NE7 (Winterside which is Needn's town). This will be discussed as Winterside is only served by the MRT Northern Line. The same town is also on the B12 road.

Roads in Hendon

The Road system in Hendon is now mainly classed as 'C' roads. Motorways in Hendon are classed as 'M' roads which is the current letter for British Motorways..

The M1 is the first major motorway (previously the C1) to run from the B12 main highway in Hendon to New Cainport. The motorway is currently unfinished beyond New Cainport but in the near future could provide an extension through New Cainport to link up with the new B122 (West) road.

The *M2 was only numbered and lettered between the B12 south of Hendon, just 30 blocks to the borders of Shadowpoint. This motorway provided a connection to Harrow, Hendon and Hatch End as well as New Cainport in case the M1 was closed between Ouarry Junction and the B12. The only 2 junctions between the M1 and the B12 is Junction 1 where the park and ride car park is and Junction 2 which provides an interchange with the M3 towards Hatch End and Harrow.

There is a proposal to only have the M2 between the B12 south of Hendon and the M3 junction so that the M3 can be extended. This is yet to be considered.

The M3 runs between the M2 at Stadium Interchange (Junc.2) and the D4 at Harrow. A proposal to build the remaining part of the M3 was never built and is now part of the North and South Circulars of Hatch End.

The *M4 runs between the D4/M3 at Harrow and the M1. This motorway was never to be built because there would be no junctions in the middle. However... the Harrow Crossing is the busiest bridge in the Hendon Borough. The M4 is basically an alternative to the M3, just that the M3 goes through the two Goomba Tunnels whereas the M4 can go through Harrow Town Tunnels or using the Harrow Crossing Colour Bridge.

The M25 is the most recently added motorway to the Hendon road network. Built by GrumpyGoomba9 It runs from Hatch End directly to New Cainport and as a result has warranted three other changes. Firstly a spur of the C3 North Circular which runs from Hatch Roundabout to to M25 J1, the C1 which connects the M25 (J1) to Harrow, and the C5 which connects the M25 into New Cainport and the M1. The M25 was named this way as it was suggested by Goomba to form a ring road around the Hendon area (a cheap gag.) However, due to the slow progress of other road developments, and also the developments of Peaslake and Jaikrunda (built by GrumpyGoomba9 and CondinYT, and situated at EN11 and EN16 respectively) progress on this project has stalled and remains uncomplete - with an unfinished junction of the M25 with the C5 by New Cainport Stadium. There are plans to extend the road in the future to form a loop. - but this will involve a massive redesign of roads in the area and probably GSM approval. As of 8th January 2018, the M25 has been completed as a loop around Hendon. Junctions 7 to 12 of the M25 Motorway is also part of the B122 road that runs from Creeperville to Hendon.

  • Some of the motorways on here will be changed soon and may just be dual-carriageways and not motorways. More updates to come in the 'Hendon Updates' section of the Wiki page

The Harrow Crossing

The Harrow Crossing is part of the M4 that goes over a river, known as the Llyn Har (Llyn in English means Lake but is a Welsh saying). However, the construction cost to build the Harrow Crossing wouldn't have gone without its doubts.

GrumpyGoomba9 and CondinYT proposed the bridge/tunnel plan. They decided to put both carriageways of the M4 on the bridge and provide separate tunnels in event of high winds or an incident on the bridge.

This lead to the bridge being constructed over a 3 month period between April and July 2017. The bridge also carries the Hendon Metro between Hendon South and Harrow.

Surprisingly, the crossing does not charge users to use the crossing. This is all funded by Hendon Borough Council in a bid to relieve traffic using the Goomba Tunnels on the M3 so that there's two ways to go to Harrow and Hatch End.

The M4 is the only motorway in Hendon that has NO other junctions in the middle except the ones at each end of the crossing.

In October 2017, the Harrow Crossing was restricted to only uCars to use in both directions. The bridge itself was reduced to 1 lane in each direction. This allowed for the Harrow Town Tunnels to be reconstructed after accidents and even a fire occurred. This then bought about a new twin tunnel under the Llyn Har.

Harrow Town Tunnels were situated to the north of the bridge rather than south to ease pressure on the D4/M3/D5 Interchange that was also being rebuilt to cater for when the bridge is closed.

Borough of Hendon and merging all towns together

The Borough of Hendon was formed when Hatch End (GrumpyGoomba9) and Harrow (CondinYT) wanted to join the rest of Hendon to create one large town altogether. Even though they are separate, the towns still comes under the Hendon Borough Council. The council offices is yet to be made and will be near to the MRT station

As of December 2017, the merging of all towns to Hendon to create a 'giant city' is underway. Hatch End, New Cainport (New Carport by the time it's completed) and Harrow will all be 'neighbourhoods'. Despite all being separate, a park will be made in the centre between all the towns. During the merge, the motorway scheme will be looked at once again to determine which motorway should be removed and which shouldn't. The result will be announced during January 2018.

Hatch End

This section was written by GrumpyGoomba9, the owner of the town.

Hatch End is a town located in the borough of Hendon. The town is owned by GrumpyGoomba9 and was established in June 2017. Hatch End is situated approximately 200 blocks west of Hendon, and was located there due to the flat land and lake. (known as Hatch End Lake) The name of the town comes from the London Overground station of the same name.

Although Hatch End is not served by a MRT line, it has a metro connection to Hendon at NE5. Hatch End station is currently served by the City line, which offers connections to Hendon and Hendon Beach - and also the Goomba Line, which offers connections to Harrow. Hatch End is also served by the C3 motorway, offering connections to the surrounding towns. Due to the hilly terrain between Hendon and Hatch End, the Goomba Tunnels were constructed on the C3. These tunnels are as old as the town itself, as until the extension of the C3 into Harrow, were the only road in and out of the town. Hatch End also has a ring road, called the D3 (although it is often referred to as the North Circular and South Circular depending on which side of the lake you are on.) There is a major intersection at the entrance to Hatch End, with the junction being split into 3A and 3B (called the Goomba Flyover and Hatch End Flyover respectively,) which links the C3 with the D3. There is also a car park, located under the grassy area outside the station. Hatch End has two bridges, and four tunnels (two being the aforementioned Goomba Tunnels) These are the Double Tunnels, Acacia Bridge and Arch Bridge. There is a services on the C3 between Hatch End and Harrow, which is the largest services in the Hendon area, and the only one to have a to have a building, containing toilets, a cafe and a shop. (although the shop and cafe are currently CLOSED.)

Harrow is a town inside the Hendon Boundary and is owned by CondinYT. Nearby to Harrow is Hatch End and Hendon itself and all of which is linked by the C3 and C4 motorways.

Although Harrow is near an MRT Line, there's no station serving the town itself. Connections to the rest of the MRT Network is via the Hendon Metro shuttle service from Hendon South Station. The station at Harrow is currently being updated to cater for the NewRail Northern Line service to be served in the town. Hendon has already got a connection to the NewRail network and Harrow could be a quick door to door rail service for the area. Harrow is also served by the Goomba Line, linking it to Hatch End.

The C3 motorway ends at Harrow Junction, just before the Harrow Crossing. However, the C4 motorway then starts from the junction and ends at the C1 Hendon Monument Interchange. The junction with Hendon Monument only serves the monument itself in the Western direction, not the eastern direction just yet.

Unlike Hatch End, it boasts a suspension bridge carrying the C4 over the lake. One other road goes into the Harrow town centre area, this is the D4. The D4 links the Harrow Junction with the C3/C4 to the centre of Harrow town.

Harrow town centre is still being developed, but has many stunning builds already complete, such as the Arrow Apartments, giving views of Hatch End and Hendon, as well as the recently completed Nyan Tower, built by GrumpyGoomba9 and becoming two of the biggest builds in the surrounding area. Harrow is also on the shore of Redgate Lake, giving a whole new potential to the area. The town is mainly located on a hill above a birch forest, and is south of one of the MRT lines.

Although not much has been built in the area yet, there are a lot of proposals of what is going to happen next. There is a possibility of a shopping mall in the planning stages, as well as a public leisure area near to the main road.

New Cainport

New Cainport is a leisure district in Hendon, owned by CondinYT, built on the site of an old industrial estate. It is one of two northern towns inside the borough of Hendon, the other being Moonlight Bay.

New Cainport has a variety of features, including its oil store, its disco/nightclub, and most notably, its stadium. The Sondico Riverside Park stadium was built for the opening season of the MRT Football League, organised by Aldranster50, however, it has since expanded in size and is going to be hosting many other sporting events in the future. Currently, it is the home of New Cainport Football Club.

As it is part of Hendon Borough, New Cainport has access to a heavy rail link, currently out of contract, but it will shortly be taken over by FrostyRail. There are two main stations in the New Cainport vicinity: New Cainport Town and New Cainport Riverside Park, as well as one request stop; New Winterside.


Connections to Hendon are only available by the B12/B121 road, by boat to Hendon Harbour or by rail to Hendon Mainline (NE5).

The NewRail line to Hendon will be the first major project to be completed since the Hendon (Silverlink) Metro opened in May 2017. Platform 1 at Hendon Mainline station is currently closed until NewRail have completed the link to Winterside West. Platform 2 and 3 are open to BoroughRail trains and this is currently running between the station and Hatch End/New Cainport.

In December 2017, after so many restrictions of the Hendon Line including heightening of the M1 bridge and that the MRT Northern Line passes over, the decision was made to abolish the NewRail plans after the problems that occurred during the weeks. FrostyRail and BoroughRail will come together and included in the next North Coast MPO meeting.

Included in the next phase of Silverlink Metro extension, it has now reached a new town constructed by Elite_IceGirl called Moonlight Bay. Moonlight Bay will become a seaside resort or a winter resort, right at the moment has no plans to extend northwards.

The Future?

The future of Hendon could be different. From December 2017, the new BoroughRail line (operated by London, Goomba and Condin with the help of Needn) will connect Hendon Mainline station and the NewRail side at NE5 to Harrow, New Cainport and Hatch End. Since the company was only formed to run inside the Hendon Borough, it has 2 car diesel trains that each carriage is 15 blocks long. For the New Cainport service, 1 coach was only needed because of the sharp curve around New Cainport stadium.

Another futuristic plan is for the M25 to become an Orbital Motorway around Hendon. This however won't be completed until March 2018 due to different phases and other projects that are ongoing between December 2017 and February 2018. One side of the M25 will be hiding a B road (B122) as classification. The B122 is also what the C7 extension to Creeperville will be, being the first road to go outside the Hendon Borough ever since the borough was created.

As time go by, upgrades to the motorways, roads, Silverlink Metro (which is the Hendon Metro, just run by BoroughRail under another name) and even town upgrades will be happening in the next few years. For more information and updates on when these upgrades are happening, speak to London150 in-game if he's online or look out in the 'Hendon Updates' section of this Wiki page. This will change after time each week.
