Consultants in for stage two of Elephant & Castle station upgrade

Visualisation of the Northern Line ticket hall

Construction consultant Arcadis and architect Hawkins Brown have been appointed to lead a stage-two design study for the Elephant & Castle station capacity upgrade (ECSCU) project.

Stage one of the project, which comprised the station box and connecting it to the existing platforms, started last year with funding from the Greater London Authority (GLA), Southwark Council and local developers. This is expected to be complete by 2028.

Stage two of the project will see the fit-out of a new integrated ticket hall, providing step-free access to the Northern Line platforms and facilitating the commissioning of the existing Northern Line ticket hall.

The fit-out will also accommodate future provision for new access to the Bakerloo Line as part of the planned Bakerloo Line extension and upgrade.

Arcadis senior director Umar Khan said: “This is an incredibly important project that will form an essential part of more than £4bn being invested in the regeneration of Elephant & Castle. This will make the area a better place to live and work. It will include an enhanced ticket hall with improved accessibility for passengers and help to secure thousands of new homes and jobs for London.”

Hawkins Brown partner Andrew Davies added: “Elephant & Castle town centre is going through major developments that will attract more people to live, work and play in this area. This project is about making sure the station is fit for purpose, accessible and easier to use.”

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
