Bond Street Elizabeth line station to open on 24 October

28 September 2022/Categories: Industry News, Rail


Subject to final approvals, Bond Street's Elizabeth line station will open on Monday 24 October.  

The station will soon be transferred to London Underground, who will operate this station in the heart of the West End. London Underground will conclude their familiarisation and final trials before welcoming the first Elizabeth line customers in just four weeks. 

The station will accommodate nearly 140,000 Elizabeth line passengers daily, contributing to an overall station capacity of 225,000 across the Jubilee, Central and Elizabeth lines. Bond Street will start with a train service every five minutes. There will be no service on Sunday 30 October, but from Sunday 6 November, trains will be every three to four minutes, seven days a week.  

Millions of passengers are already using the Elizabeth line with more than 45 million journeys being made across the whole line, since the railway opened in May this year. Around half of those (22 million journeys) were carried out in the central section between Paddington and Abbey Wood, and Thursday 22 September saw around 276,000 journeys completed in the central section, the highest daily number to date.

From Sunday 6 November, the lines from Reading, Heathrow, and Shenfield will connect with the central tunnels of the Elizabeth line - opening up new direct journeys across the capital and providing a huge boost to the West End as it continues to recover from the pandemic and gears up for the busy festive period. Customers from Heathrow, Reading and Shenfield will then be able to go directly to Bond Street without having to change trains at Paddington or Liverpool Street mainline stations.  

Transport Minister, Katherine Fletcher said:

'In just a few short months, the Elizabeth line has already established itself as a staple of London's transport network by delivering more than 45 million journeys and creating 55,000 jobs.

'The opening of Bond Street station next month is set to cement its status even further, enabling over 140,000 people to access one of the UK's biggest shopping areas and the heart of the legendary West End, adding an expected £42 billion to the UK economy over the coming decades. 

'London's transport system is its lifeblood and the £9 billion of Government investment which helped the Elizabeth line dream become a reality will transform the lives of millions for generations to come.'
