Crossrail submits Bond Street station for approval

22 Dec 10 Crossrail has submitted its detailed design plans for Bond Street station to Westminster City Council for planning approval.

The new £300m station will be integrated with the existing Tube station to form a combined station that will stretch from Hanover Square to Oxford Street.

Costain Laing O’Rourke JV  was awarded the Bond Street station contract in August and is set to start work in 2011 and complete in 2017.

The new Crossrail station, designed by architects John McAslan and Partners, will have entrances and ticket halls at Davies Street and Hanover Square. More than 155,000 passengers already use the Tube station daily and with the arrival of Crossrail in 2018, passenger numbers are expected to increase to 225,000.

Bond Street Crossrail station will be constructed on five levels with the ticket halls at street level and designed in such a way to allow free flowing movement of passengers into and out of the station.

The design for Bond Street Crossrail station also makes provision for the early implementation of above-ground developments which will be the subject of separate planning applications.

Crossrail will cut journey times from the West End to many destinations, in some cases reducing them by half. Passengers will be able to reach Heathrow in 31 minutes, Canary Wharf in 12 minutes and Paddington in just two minutes. The Crossrail service at Bond Street station will be 24 trains per hour in each direction at peak times.

Julian Robinson, Crossrail’s head of station design, said: “Bond Street will be one of the most important stations on the Crossrail route as it will provide access to the West End. Architects John McAslan and Partners have designed a station that not only meets the future needs of passengers but reflects the aspirations of the world’s most famous retail district. The station will also include an integrated commercial over site development above the new Crossrail ticket halls at Davies Street and Hanover Square providing the West End with additional retail and commercial space.”
