New tube station

A new Northern Line Underground ticket hall, with new escalators and station entrance, will be fully integrated in to the new town centre. This will feature step-free access from the street to the platform, making it easier for disabled passengers to use and help those with pushchairs.

The new Northern Line Ticket Hall is an intrinsic part of the new town centre, which sits in the centre of the wider £3 billion regeneration underway in Elephant and Castle.

The existing ticket hall frequently suffers from overcrowding and often has to shut during rush hour to manage the flow of people in and out of the tube. The proposed new ticket hall will solve this by increasing capacity, in line with Transport for London’s long-term approach for the London Underground network. It will also help ensure the station can stay open during rush hour, and make the area more inviting for visitors.
