Station works are progressing well at Tottenham Court Road. Kate Ashley reports. T


ottenham Court Road Underground station works were 60% complete when


Rail Technology Magazine went to press, with civil engineering projects creating new passageways, a new entrance and much larger ticket hall.


Fitting-out has also begun at the £1bn station, with Phase 1 due to open in 2015.


Crossrail released these new photos to show how the works, which will provide a third more capacity at the station, have been progressing over the summer.


Major public realm improvements are also being planned to revitalise the local area.


The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson called the plans “ambitious” and said: “Upgrades such as this to our transport network are vital in order to ensure the capital continues to be the economic powerhouse of the country.”


David Waboso, London Underground’s capital programmes director, said: “The east end of Oxford Street in London’s West End will undergo one of the most significant changes with the upgraded Tube station and brand new Crossrail links.


“A vast amount of work has been done at Tottenham Court Road Underground station and there is still much to do but when complete the upgraded station will ease congestion,


improve accessibility and provide a direct interchange with Crossrail services when they start operating in 2018.”


Andrew Wolstenholme, Crossrail chief executive, said: “Crossrail is not just delivering major new stations in the West End but transforming the areas around the stations.


“It is the site of our largest property development and urban regeneration programme, which will deliver new retail, office, residential space, new squares, paths and greenery, and attract new businesses and customers.”
