TfL updates on progress of upgrade at Bank station as it nears completion
Bank branch of the Northern line, from Kennington to Moorgate, will be closed for 17 weeks from January 2022 to facilitate complex final stages of work.
TfL is updating customers on the huge progress made at the Bank Tube station upgrade as it announces the final phase of work needed to complete the project.
The project has seen 200,000 tonnes of material excavated from under the City of London, allowing a new tunnel for the Northern line to be constructed alongside a number of improved customer routes through the station.
The final phase of the work will be completed during a 17-week closure of the Bank branch of the Northern line from 15 January until mid-May 2022.
This closure will allow TfL and its contractors to complete the intricate work needed to connect the new tunnels to the existing railway, as well as fit out the new station, install the final sections of track, complete work in the tunnels constructed during the project and integrate all the new systems installed in the station.
It will also allow London Underground staff to prepare to operate the new areas of the station safely.
The improvements at Bank will include a new station entrance providing direct access to the Northern line on Cannon Street, as well as a new circulating area to provide more space for customers underground and a new southbound Northern line platform.
These changes will help to address long-standing capacity issues at the station and make journeys through Bank easier, quicker and more comfortable.
