We are pleased to announce that we have been appointed by Arup and Costain/Skanska to complete the detail design and construction of the new Crossrail Bond Street Station and public realm. Bond Street is in the heart of London’s West End, in Westminster, the busiest shopping district in the UK, where the tube station currently serves more than 155,000 passengers daily.
When Crossrail arrives in 2018, passenger numbers are anticipated to grow to over 220,000, daily. Crossrail is constructing two new ticket halls – at Davies Street and Hanover Square. Crossrail is also working with the City of Westminster and Transport for London to enhance the public realm around the new station, and is partnering with property developers to develop commercial and residential space above its stations. The architectural design for the station was developed by John Mcaslan & Partners and a team from Atkins Grimshaw in collaboration with WSP.
This is the third Crossrail central section station we have in the Studio, the first being Tottenham Court Road. Both are now moving into detail design and construction, and will be operational in 2018.
As part of Crossrail 1 the Elizabeth Line, Europe’s largest infrastructure project, Hawkins\Brown are currently delivering three new Crossrail stations at Tottenham Court Road, Bond Street and Liverpool Street, all due for completion in 2018. Tottenham Court Road is a significant interface for the new Crossrail line and London Underground network; in addition to the new Crossrail station here, we recently completed an upgrade to the Underground station and we are also designing a new build over station development.
