Tottenham Court Road upgrade 60% complete

Listen to this article

New images from Crossrail show the progress of the £1 billion project to improve Tottenham Court Road station – now 60 per cent complete.

Work on new passageways, a new entrance and new larger ticket office have now been completed by London Underground to accomodate the additional 50,000 passengers expected to use the station everyday when Crossrail opens in 2018.

The station fit out is also underway, ahead of the opening of Phase 1 in 2015.

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.”

  1. Is this an underground station or Alcatraz? Were is the colour? Style? Charm? London Transport did imaginative things with lighting using up lighters. Why so cold?
