New designs for Tottenham Court Road Crossrail unveiled

Westminister City Council has received a planning application from Crossrail for its reworked Tottenham Court Road Station development.

The £1 billion London project will connect Crossrail with the existing Tube network to form an integrated station of almost a kilometre in length, with three exits spread across Soho and Oxford Street.

Plans would make the London Underground ticket hall six times larger, while the capacity of the station would double. There will also be a new entrance to the Tube and Crossrail station at Centrepoint, the shopping and office tower at the bottom of Oxford Street.

The new drawings are the work of Crossrail architects Hawkins Brown, which has been working on the designs for the last year.

The new Crossrail station will be constructed on a site bound by Oxford Street to the north, Great Chapel Street to the west, Dean Street to the east and Diadem Court to the south. It station will be built with five levels with the ticket hall at street level. It is designed to facilitate the free flow of passengers entering and exiting the station, reducing congestion and crowding. The new Crossrail station will also benefit from step-free access.
