The modernisation of Bank Tube Station has reached a significant new milestone, with the first breakthrough between a new entrance on Cannon Street and the newly constructed Northern line Tube tunnel made on Friday (15 March). The breakthrough will make further construction work easier, helping to ensure the hugely important upgrade is delivered by 2022.

The project to upgrade Bank Tube station, which is being delivered alongside contractor Dragados, will increase capacity by 40 per cent by 2022, making journeys quicker and easier for the 120 million customers who use the station every year.

“Bank Tube station is one of the busiest and most important stations on the network,” Stuart Harvey, Transport for London’s Director of Major Projects, said. “The area around the station has a high concentration of important infrastructure both above and below ground, including a number of historic, significant buildings in the local area, making the upgrade work incredibly complex. The hard work done by the project team will result in real improvements in the journeys of hundreds of thousands of customers every day.”
