TFL con­sults on Hol­born up­grades

Rail (UK) - - News -

Trans­port for Lon­don is con­sult­ing on plans to up­grade Hol­born Un­der­ground sta­tion.

Un­der its pro­pos­als, the sta­tion would more than dou­ble in size and in­clude a new en­trance and exit on Proc­ter Street. Ad­di­tion­ally, three new lifts in the ex­ist­ing Kingsway en­trance would pro­vide step-free ac­cess to the Cen­tral and Pic­cadilly lines, and planned new in­ter­change routes be­tween the two lines are ex­pected to re­duce crowd­ing at peak times.

Hol­born is the eleventh-busiest sta­tion on the Un­der­ground net­work, with 63 mil­lion pas­sen­gers us­ing it ev­ery year. De­mand is ex­pected to in­crease by 30% in the 2030s.
