Tottenham Court Road, Eastern Ticket Hall

Tottenham Court Road is one of the busiest underground stations in London with 100,000 passengers a day using it as the ‘gateway to the west end’. The station has to be closed at peak times and desperately needs modernization. Particular problems include congestion of the ticket hall, lower concourse and platforms; links between street and platform levels are inaccessible, and ventilation and access for emergency services need urgent modernisation.
