By 2021 we plan to:
Most of the work will be below ground level. We aim to keep disruption to a minimum during construction and manage environmental impacts with industry best practices.
We modified our plans after our first consultation in 2011, so we ran another consultation between 4 October and 8 November 2013. See the Bank station capacity upgrade consultation page.
These improvements are in addition to a new station entrance and step-free access to the Waterloo & City line which is scheduled to be completed earlier as part of a third party development.
We have also recently completed refurbishing and replacing 15 escalators which will help improve the speed of customer journeys through the station.
Between them, Bank and Monument stations are served by five Underground lines as well as the DLR.
Currently, 96,000 passengers use Bank station during the morning peak period, about 40,000 of whom are changing between lines.
The two stations consist of three ticket halls, six lifts, 10 platforms, 15 escalators and two 300-foot moving walkways, making one of the largest and most complicated subterranean railway complexes in the world.
