Bond Street Stations Breakthrough
The final passageway linking the expanded Bond Street station to the new Crossrail station was excavated on 1st October, bringing the Tube station’s two-year tunnelling project to an end. Acanthus Architects LW have been closely involved working with the Halcrow Atkins engineering team in the design of the new tunnels. Over 550m of new tunnels forming passageways, lift shafts and escalator barrels have been constructed as part of the engineering project.
The work forms part of a complex station upgrade beneath a small footprint at street level. AALW continue to be integral with the internal fit out of the tunnels as well as the works to provide a new entrance on Marylebone Lane on the north side of Oxford Street.
