Two new ticket halls will be built: a western facility on Cowcross Street and an eastern equivalent at Lindsey Street. The western entrance on the south side of Cowcross Street will be intergrated with the new Thameslink station. Cardinal House will be demolished to provide space for interchanges between the Thameslink and Crossrail platforms.

The eastern ticket hall will be on a site surrounded by Hayne Street, Long Lane, Lindsey Street and Charterhouse Street, with an entrance on Long Lane.

The station will consist of two platforms fitted out to 210m although the tunnel will be constructed to facilitate extensions to 245m should the need to operate longer trains arise. The platforms will be between Farringdon Road and Charterhouse Square, offering interchanges with Thameslink and the Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City Tube lines.

Step-free access will be provided to improve passenger mobility between the street and Crossrail platforms.

Journey times:
Isle of Dogs - 9 Mins
Ealing Broadway - 20 Mins
Heathrow - 33 Mins
