About this event

Bank and Monument are interlinked London Underground and Docklands Light Railway stations that form a public transport complex spanning the length of King William Street in the City of London. Bank station, named after the Bank of England, opened in 1900 and is served by the Central, Northern and Waterloo & City lines as well as the Docklands Light Railway.

Monument station, named after the Monument to the Great Fire of London, opened in 1884 and is served by the District and Circle lines. The stations have been linked as an interchange since 1933. The Bank-Monument station complex is a strategically important network asset, being the fourth busiest interchange and a major destination in the heart of the City of London.

More people are using the London Underground, with over 1 billion journeys in 2011. In recent times the number of interchange journeys made at Bank has risen by over 40%.

The Bank Station Capacity Upgrade project provides an integrated solution to meet the scheme objectives of providing more passenger capacity, step free access to street level and significant improvement in evacuation time.

The principal project objective for Bank Station upgrade project is to increase capacity.

The proposed works comprise SCL Tunneling Works for the new running tunnel, platform works, square works, ground and building movement analysis, MEP, a 30m deep temporary access shaft, ticket hall, deep substructures, system wide services and the over station development.
