Hochtief has won the contract to fit out the new Waterloo & City line station entrance box at Bank.
The project is part of the £57M redevelopment of the Bank/Monument Tube interchange, for which Sir Robert McAlpine is main contractor.
It will provide a new step free entrance at the station giving passengers direct access to the Waterloo and City Line from Walbrook Square.
McAlpine is building the Waterloo & City line station box while working on media firm Bloomberg’s new European headquarters. It is an underground structure that will enable the subsequent installation of four new escalators, two new lifts and a new ticket hall. The contractor will hand over the box to London Underground next summer, with the final fit out scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017.
In a separate project, Transport for London is also planning to redevelop the Northern Line section of the station, which includes building a new line southbound tunnel, interchange tunnels, an additional station entrance, and step-free access to the Northern line platforms.
Bank station currently serves 98 million passengers per year and is one of London’s busiest Tube stations.
The works form part of London Underground’s station capacity programme to enlarge and make step-free the capital’s busiest stations.
