Bank and Monument Tube station upgrade plans go on display

07:00 28 May 2012

The public is being given a second chance to look at plans for the upgrade of Bank and Monument stations, the fourth busiest interchange on the Tube network.

The plans include the creation of wider platforms, better access to lines and step-free access to a new ticket hall.

The proposed scheme, scheduled to be completed by 2021, aims to relieve congestion and increase capacity of the station complex in the heart of the City which is used by 96,000 passengers during morning rush hour.

A second exhibition of the plans starts today (May 28) and runs until Friday from 8am to 6pm each day.

Members of the project team will be available to answer any questions about the proposals at the Guildhall Ambulatory, on the corner of Aldermanbury and Gresham Street, EC2V.

David Waboso, London Underground’s director of capital programmes, said: “Bank is one of the busiest stations on the network and we’ve been working closely with the City of London Corporation on plans to create more capacity at this important interchange.

“Most of the work will be below the ground and we’ll keep disruption to a minimum during construction, but it’s important that the public have the chance to comment on what we’re proposing to improve their Tube network.”
