Bank Underground station completes £700m upgrade

28 February 2023/Categories: Industry News, Rail

The new direct interchanges can make journeys quicker for those changing between lines, as customers can save up to nine minutes on their journeys.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, visited the new ticket hall at Bank Underground to mark the completion of its major £700m upgrade. The new entrance on Cannon Street gives customers easy access - via six new escalators - to the Northern line and DLR. It also includes two new lifts which provide step-free access to the Northern line for the first time, and improved access to the DLR. 

Bank station now has 40 per cent greater capacity because of the major upgrade, with the opening of the new ticket hall on Cannon Street being the final milestone in this hugely complex construction project which started in 2016.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, said: "These extensive works have transformed Bank station into a world-class station, fit to serve a financial district of international renown. Londoners can now benefit from a station with 40 per cent increased capacity, a brand-new entrance on Cannon Street and two new lifts which will deliver step-free access to the Northern Line for the first time.  

"London's Tube network is key to the capital's wider economic recovery. These updates to Bank station are just one of the ways I am continually improving London's transport network to build a safer, more accessible and more prosperous city for all Londoners." 

Following the completion of the Bank Station Capacity Upgrade, the two stations now have five ticket halls, nine lifts and 10 platforms. In addition, Bank station now has 31 escalators, the largest number of any station on the Tube network.
