Constructing Paddington Crossrail station beneath Eastbourne Terrace
The Crossrail Paddington Station is being built directly below Departures Road and Eastbourne Terrace and will offer a superior travelling experience with smoother interchanges and improved accessibility, easing congestion and providing space for future growth in passenger numbers.
The station will take the form of an underground box measuring 260m long, 25m wide and 23m deep, and is located directly under Departures Road and Eastbourne Terrace.
Construction of the station started in October 2011. Click on the details below to find out about current construction works at Paddington.
We would like to give you advance notification of our proposed schedule of Eastbourne Terrace road closures.
The closures are essential for deliveries of x74 precast Brickslip panels to be installed along the north wall ticket hall void. We will also take delivery of sections making up the main lift-shaft. The table below shows the dates of the closures, Eastbourne Terrace will be re-opened once it is safe to do so.
Pedestrian access to the footway and properties along Eastbourne Terrace will be maintained at all times.
Eastbourne Terrace will be closed between Praed Street and Cleveland Terrace each weekend in January 2017, from 07:00 on Saturday to 18:00 on Sunday. Bus diversions will be in place. Pedestrian access to the footway and properties along Eastbourne Terrace will be maintained at all times.
You may be aware that as part of the Crossrail project, London Underground (LU) has started the construction of the Bakerloo Line Link (BLL).
The BLL is a passenger subway between the new Crossrail Paddington station platforms on Eastbourne Terrace and the LU Bakerloo line platforms.
The BLL is scheduled to open in 2018 along with the Crossrail central London service.
