This letter outlines the Secretary of State for Transport’s decision about construction of a new southbound running tunnel at Bank station.

The Secretary of State has decided to allow the construction to proceed with modifications.

The suggested work is a new southbound running tunnel to carry a diversion of the Northern Line with new passenger platform to serve the diverted line. The work would also:

  • make cross passages from the new platform to the existing Northern Line southbound platform
  • improve passenger access between the Northern Line, Central Line and the Docklands Light Railway
