Reconstruction of London Underground's Wembley Central station was approved last week after plans to redevelop Wembley Stadium won planning permission. The £17M project involves reconstruction of the whole station, which serves the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines plus the Chiltern railway line.

The reconstruction is timed to coincide with the stadium being demolished and rebuilt. This will allow it to stay open as a commuter station during construction without large volumes of spectators. When complete, the station will have an enlarged ticket hall and overbridges leading down to the platforms. It will also have a new side entrance designed to channel large crowds of people.

To keep the station open to commuters, structural engineer Ove Arup & Partners has planned construction in threehour night possession slots, using prefabricated steel and precast concrete components.
