New Elizabeth line station opens next week

18 October 2022/Categories: Rail


The Bond Street Elizabeth line station will open on Monday 24 October. 

Final preparations are underway at Bond Street Elizabeth line station ahead of the station opening to customers next week. The new station is set to improve travel across London and the South East by providing a new link to one of the busiest shopping districts in Europe. Services will begin calling at the station ahead of an anticipated busy winter this year. It has two new entrances, one at Davies Street near Oxford Street and one at Hanover Square near Regent Street.

The final week of trial operations is currently underway. Trial operations include practice evacuations, testing fire control systems and alarms, and extensive security checks. In addition to trial operations, signage and wayfinding is being unveiled to direct customers, and a final deep clean of the station will take place.  

The new station is step free from street to train with two lifts to street level, further enhancing accessibility across the TfL network. The station will be able to accommodate nearly 140,000 Elizabeth line passenger journeys daily. This will more than double the number of people currently using Bond Street station to visit the area - providing a welcome boost to the area and easing congestion at nearby stations.  

The Deputy Mayor for Transport, Seb Dance, said: "It is exciting that in less than a week's time the Bond Street Elizabeth line station will open. The Elizabeth line is helping to build a better London - one which is safer, fairer, greener, and more prosperous city for all Londoners.  

"This spacious and step-free station will provide a new link to one of the busiest shopping districts in Europe ahead of the festive period, helping to draw more people back into the centre of the city and encouraging them to make the most of the capital - supporting shops, restaurants, and theatres in the West End. I want to thank all the team at Bond Street for their hard work to get the station ready to open its doors on Monday, and I can't wait for Londoners and visitors to our city to experience it for themselves."
