Revealed: New Crossrail plans for Tottenham Court Road
These are the first images of Hawkins\Brown and Arup/Atkins has revealed its latest proposals for the new Crossrail station at Tottenham Court Road in central London
The new Crossrail station sits between Oxford Street to the north, Great Chapel Street to the west, Dean Street to the east and Diadem Court to the south and will link to the existing Tube station, forming a 993m-long combined station that will stretch from Soho to Centre Point.
Billed as the gateway to the West End and Soho, the station will be constructed with five levels with the ticket hall at street level.
A separate eastern glazed entrance, currently being designed by Stanton Williams, will open onto a new piazza outside Centre Point.
Rob Holden, Crossrail Chief Executive said: ‘The striking designs for Tottenham Court Road Crossrail station will soon become a reality as preparatory construction work is now underway ahead of the start of main works in 2011.
‘As the gateway to the West End and Soho, the station will be one of the most important on the Crossrail route and will be constructed on a scale similar to those on the Jubilee Line Extension. This will ensure the station meets the needs of Londoners, commuters and visitors to the capital for generations to come.’
