Upgrades Cause Disruption At Bond Street

Passengers will have to put up with restricted services at one of the busiest stations on the London Underground until December.

Central line trains will not stop at Bond Street Tube station in the heart of London's West End from April 23 to late June.

And then Jubilee line trains will not stop at Bond Street from early July until early December.

In addition, the Central line will be suspended between Marble Arch and Liverpool Street this Saturday and Sunday so preparatory work can be undertaken.

The restrictions are necessary as modernisation work is going on at the station as part of the £10 billion worth of Tube improvements.

The improvements at Bond Street include new escalators and lifts, as well as a new ticket hall and station entrance on the north side of Oxford Street.

Bond Street is one of the interchange stations for the £14.8 billion cross-London Crossrail scheme. Due to be completed by 2018, Crossrail will enable the number of  passengers using Bond Street daily to rise from 155,000 to 225,000.
