Transport for London has announced that the roof on the new station entrance at Bank, has been ‘topped out’ and is now complete.

The new entrance will provide passengers with direct access to the Northern line, as well as connecting a new moving walkway to the Central line.

The upgrade of Bank station is due to be completed in 2022 and will boost capacity at the interchange by 40%.

Work will now continue to fit out the entrance, with the next stage focused on creating the dividing walls and operational rooms.

The remaining tunnelling is progressing well, with the southbound platform under construction.

What did the officials say?

Stuart Harvey, TfL’s Major Projects Director, said:

‘Bank Tube station is one of the busiest on the Tube network, with over 120 million customers using it every year.

‘Once complete, the upgrade will make journeys through the station quicker and more comfortable for everyone, providing greater capacity at this vitally important interchange.’
