Tottenham Court Road StationEdit profile
When Tottenham Court Road station opened in 1900, it was not designed to handle nearly 150,000 passengers every day. As a key West End interchange, this number is set to grow, especially with the arrival of Crossrail in 2017, when passenger numbers will increase to 200,000. The rebuilding of Tottenham Court Road station is now underway. When complete, in 2016, this will deliver: •a new ticket hall, nearly six times the current size •step-free access from street to platform •new escalators serving the Northern line •an interchange with Crossrail •Urban realm improvements, including bold new station entrances from a pedestrianised plaza outside the landmark Centre Point building.
