Improvements To South Kensington Tube Station

Transport for London have announced that they are looking for a partner to improve South Kensington tube station.

It’s all described in this article in the Construction Enquirer, which is entitled TfL invites bids for South Ken tube station revamp.

The following improvements are mentioned.

  • Improve the retail and commercial units of the station.
  • Refurbish the buildings at 20-34 Thurloe Street.
  • Restore the Grade II Listed entrance to its original state.
  • Provide step-free access to the District and Circle line via a new station entrance on Thurloe Street.
  • Bring a disused Eastbound platform back into use.
  • Improve the gate line and emergency exits.

There will also be some extra development on TfL’s land.

This Google Map shows the layout of the station.

And this map from carto.metro.free.fr shows the layout of the lines.

 

TfL are hoping work can start next year.
