Ooh… Shiny! Bond Street station unveils new entrance after £300m revamp
Bond Street station has opened its new entrance and ticket hall!
Following a £300 million revamp the new look area is now open for you to wander through with Transport for London revealing the completed station ahead of the new Elizabeth line route opening in a years time.
The new halls aren’t just for looks either, being billed to be able to take 30% more passengers, TfL said.
The entrance opens out onto the north side of Oxford Street at Marylebone Lane and now includes lifts for the first time at the West End station – in line with the Mayor’s target for 40 per cent of London’s transport network to be step free by 2022.
Val Shawcross, London’s deputy mayor for transport, said: “We’re so pleased that Bond Street has today become the 72nd step-free tube station.
“The upgrade of the station is going to make a real difference for passengers and marks another key stage in the development of the area, with the Elizabeth line due to open next year and our plans for the transformation of Oxford Street progressing well.”
Mark Wild, managing director of London Underground, said: “The new, modernised Bond Street station will make journeys quicker and easier for the hundreds of thousands of people who travel through it every day.
“It’s fantastic to open the station in time for the Christmas shopping period, making Oxford Street more accessible to all of our customers as well as boosting businesses in the area.
You can visit the new Bond Street station entrance whenever you like! It’s… open.
