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 225,000, daily.

The new Crossrail station at Bond Street will increase passenger capacity and improve accessibility at one of London’s busiest stations. Weaving the unique local history into the design in and around the station, the new development will enhance the experience of passengers, visitors and those who live and work nearby. 

Two brand new ticket halls – at Hanover Square in the east and Davies Street in the west – have been designed with a carefully considered selection of material to create timeless and easily recognisable public spaces.

Ticket halls, flooded with natural light, will lead passengers through to the new Crossrail platforms deep below ground. Striking colonnades at street level will wrap around the ticket halls merging the internal and external spaces to create welcoming public areas that complement the distinctive architecture of neighbouring buildings.

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.

A new public art piece will be created for the west ticket hall. The selection of the artwork will take place later this year. 

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.

Further information about the upgrade of the existing Bond Street London Underground station are available at www.tfl.gov.uk/bondstreet

Area improvements

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

The design in and around the station places great emphasis on an enhanced pedestrian experience. Generous forecourts with high quality granite paving will seamlessly extend into the station concourse at both ends. These public spaces will also include wider footpaths, new cycle stands and improved lighting and signage.

Developments above the stations will offer a mix of additional retail and office spaces for those who live, work and visit London’s prime shopping destination. 

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.

Crossrail and development partner Grosvenor have obtained planning consent for a sympathetic development at 65 Davies Street in Mayfair.

The scheme comprises of a 100,000 sq ft development located above the western ticket hall. This includes six floors of office accommodation which will be served by an entrance lobby on Davies Street.

Architects PLP Architecture have provided a contemporary office design that is sensitive to the traditional architecture of the neighbouring Mayfair buildings, while incorporating high-quality natural materials with a richly detailed façade. Grosvenor will be responsible for delivering the scheme once the Crossrail station and ticket hall works are complete in 2017.
