Victoria Station Upgrade

Victoria Station Upgrade

Victoria Underground station handles more passengers than Heathrow Airport each year. We are working in partnership with BAM Nuttall in a 50:50 joint venture to deliver an upgrade that will relieve congestion, improve access, and extend the station’s life by approximately 75 years.

The project is located at the centre of one of London’s key transport hubs; weaved around a dense population of residents and stakeholders and so intense stakeholder management, along with innovative methods to maintain “business as usual” for passengers have been integral to the Upgrade’s ongoing success. Key features of the project are:

  • New North ticket hall (30,000m³ top-down construction)
  • 50% enlargement of existing South ticket hall (13,000m³ top-down construction)
  • 300m of connecting tunnels between ticket halls
  • Station modernisation, including 9 new escalators and 7 new lifts to provide step-free access

The project delivered a major milestone in January 2016, when the new North ticket hall was brought into use. A third of the project’s tunnels are in use as routes to and from the new ticket hall, and the remainder will be brought into use when this multi award-winning project is completed in Summer 2018 with the opening of the station’s extended South ticket hall.
