TfL appoints Arcadis and Hawkins\Brown to lead Stage 2 Design Study on Elephant & Castle Station Capacity Upgrade
Stage 1 of the project commenced last year with funding secured from the Greater London Authority (GLA), Southwark Council and local developers.
The project will see a new Northern Line entrance and ticket hall created at Elephant & Castle Tube Station to help support the creation of 7,500 new homes and 10,000 new jobs in the area. By boosting the neighbourhood’s infrastructure, local economy and creating new places to work, the project will create sustainable jobs throughout Elephant & Castle – in offices, retail and restaurants as well as cultural venues.
Stage 2 of the project will see the fit out of a new integrated ticket hall, providing step-free access to the Northern Line platforms and facilitating the commissioning of the existing Northern Line Ticket Hall. The fit-out will also accommodate future provision for new access to the Bakerloo Line as part of the Bakerloo Line Extension and Upgrade.
We're looking forward to continuing our collaboration with Arcadis to create a more enjoyable journey for the millions of people travelling in and out of this part of the city every day.
