Tendering began last week and the deadline is on 5 June. 

The contract is set for three and a half years and is open for renewal. 

Stage one will see: 

  • A new station box providing an additional entrance to both lines. 
  • Passenger tunnels connecting the station box to existing platforms. 
  • Civil works associated with the new station box (tunnelling works). 
  • Delivery of localised premises and MEP works to facilitate the construction of the tunnels.  

Foundation work on the station box began in January 2022 by Elephant and Castle Development UK, and 408 piles have been constructed. 

Stage one of the project is expected to be completed by 2026.


The upgrade aims to:

  • Provide more than 1,700 sqm of new concourse space for passengers. 
  • Increase station capacity by more than 30% by 2031. 
  • Further the Elephant and Castle £4 billion regeneration programme, which includes; 
  • The construction of 7,500 new homes, and 
  • 10,000 new jobs. 
  • Further plans for the proposed Bakerloo line extension.

TfL has confirmed that stage two has not yet secured funding. 

Arcadis and Hawkins\Brown were appointed in February to lead the Stage 2 Design Study. 

This stage will involve a new integrated ticket hall, providing step-free to the Northern Line platforms. 

TfL was approached for further information.
