The Elizabeth Line’s Bond Street station is due to open in less than four weeks

Bond Street station on London’s Elizabeth Line will open on Monday October 24, Transport for London (TfL) has announced.

The new railway opened in May but trains have not served Bond Street due to delays in completing the station.

The opening of Bond Street – which is subject to “final approvals” – is expected to ease congestion at nearby Oxford Circus tube station.

It will also make the area more accessible as Bond Street will offer step-free access from street to train.

London’s outgoing Transport Commissioner Andy Byford said: “The new Elizabeth Line station on Bond Street will be the jewel in the crown of West End transport.

“It is truly spectacular and will provide a highly meaningful new connection to one of the UK’s busiest shopping districts, giving people across London and the South East even greater connectivity to work and play.

“I can’t wait to see people using this beautiful, spacious and step-free station.

“It will be another big moment for London transport and the bright future ahead for the city.”

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I am delighted that the new Elizabeth Line station on Bond Street will open on Monday 24 October.

“The latest impressive addition to this transforming line will give Londoners and tourists quick and direct access to the heart of London’s West End.

“Millions have already ridden the Elizabeth line and the opening of a station on Bond Street will help draw people back to our world-class public transport network, encourage people to make the most of the capital, and businesses support across the city. ”

TfL said more than 45 million journeys have been made on the Elizabeth line since the railway opened.

About half of these (22 million journeys) took place in the new tunnels under central London between Paddington and Abbey Wood.
