Transport for London has announced that Bond Street’s Elizabeth line station will open on 24 October 2022, subject to final approvals. The opening of the station will further transform travel across London and the South East by providing a new link to one of the busiest shopping districts in Europe.
The station will soon be transferred to London Underground, who will operate this station in the heart of the West End. London Underground will conclude its familiarisation and final trials before welcoming the first Elizabeth line customers in October 2022.
From 24 October, two brand new spacious ticket halls will lead passengers to the 255m long Elizabeth line platforms. The new station is step free from street to train with two lifts, further enhancing accessibility on the Elizabeth line and across the TfL network.
The new station will accommodate nearly 140,000 Elizabeth line passengers daily, contributing to an overall station capacity of 225,000 across the Jubilee, Central and Elizabeth lines. Bond Street will start with a train service every five minutes. While there will be no service on 30 October, from 6 November 2022 trains will provide service every three to four minutes, seven days a week.
Andy Byford, London’s Transport Commissioner, said: “The new Elizabeth line station at Bond Street will be the jewel in the crown of the West End’s transport provision. It is truly spectacular and will provide a highly significant new link to one of the busiest shopping districts in the UK, enabling even further connectivity to jobs and leisure for people across London and the South East.”
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’m delighted that the new Elizabeth line station at Bond Street will open on Monday 24 October. The latest stunning addition to this transformational line will give Londoners and tourists quick and direct access to the heart of London’s West End.”
Transport Minister, Katherine Fletcher said: “In just a few short months, the Elizabeth line has already established itself as a staple of London’s transport network by delivering more than 45 million journeys and creating 55,000 jobs. The opening of Bond Street station next month is set to cement its status even further, enabling over 140,000 people to access one of the UK’s biggest shopping areas and the heart of the legendary West End, adding an expected £42 billion to the UK economy over the coming decades.”
