Bond Street Station

Bond Street Station

Bond Street is in the heart of London’s West End, the busiest shopping district in the UK – serving tourists, residents and businesses in the area.

More than 155,000 passengers use the existing Tube station daily. When Crossrail arrives in 2018, passenger numbers are anticipated to grow to over 220,000, daily.

In order to cater for the increase in passenger numbers Crossrail is constructing two new ticket halls – a western ticket hall at Davies Street and an eastern ticket hall on the corner of Hanover Square and Tenterden Street.

Step-free access will be provided to the 260m station platforms 26m beneath the south side of Oxford Street.  In addition to this a step free passenger link tunnel will connect the Crossrail platforms to the existing London Underground station.

Crossrail Bond Street station in numbers:

  • 24 trains per hour service at peak times in each direction
  • 260m – length of platform tunnels
  • 26m - platform depth
  • 45m – space between platform tunnels
  • Platform tunnels will run parallel to and approximately 100 metres south of Oxford Street.
  • 4 lifts and 9 escalators, with the longest escalator rise being 26 metres
  • 220,000 passengers are expected to use Bond Street London Underground and Crossrail Station every day.

Crossrail will cut journey times from the West End to many destinations, in some cases reducing them by half.

The addition of a Crossrail station at Bond Street will enable far simpler journeys for passengers travelling into and across central London, as well as direct interchanges with the Central and Jubilee lines.

Construction of the new Crossrail station at Bond Street got underway in 2010, with a programme of utility diversion works and the demolition of buildings above each of the ticket hall sites.

Bond Street station western ticket hall is being constructed on the site of 65 Davies Street creating the new entrance to the new Crossrail platforms on the corner of Davies Street and Weighhouse Street.

The station's eastern ticket hall will be located in Hanover Square also providing a new entrance to the station platforms under Mayfair at the corner of Hanover Square and Tenterden Street.

Tube upgrade plan

Bond Street station is also undergoing a major redevelopment to increase capacity, improve accessibility and create an interchange with Crossrail.

London Underground is working alongside Crossrail to upgrade the existing Tube station. This includes building a new station entrance on Marylebone Lane, expanding the ticket hall, installing additional escalators to the Jubilee line, providing step-free access throughout and building an interchange with the new Crossrail station.

Bond Street station’s upgrade project will deliver:

  • a new ticket hall to relieve congestion;
  • step-free access;
  • new escalators to the Jubilee line and additional interchange passageways;
  • a new station entrance on the north side of Oxford Street on Marylebone Lane;
  • access to new Crossrail services.

In addition to delivering a new station, Crossrail is also working with the City of Westminster to enhance the surface environment around the new station. 

Crossrail has received approval for a 300,000 sq ft retail, commercial and residential space above its eastern ticket hall at Hanover Square.

Development partner, Great Portland Estates, will be responsible for building the over-site development once the ticket hall in Hanover Square is completed in 2016.

The Hanover Square Masterplan site is located between Hanover Square and New Bond Street within the heart of Mayfair. The site is bounded by Hanover Square to the east, Brook Street to the south, New Bond Street to the west and Tenterden Street to the north.

The design for Crossrail’s Bond Street station western exit on Davies Street also makes provision for the implementation of an over-site development which is the subject of a separate planning application by Grosvenor Estates and Crossrail.
