Cowper Street Entrance To Old Street Station – 21st February 2021

These pictures show the start of the works to create the new Cowper Street entrance to Old Street station.

Note the large frame, which had been delivered the previous day.

This map from Transport for London shows the future layout.

The Cowper Street entrance will be in the South-East corner of the roundabout. The map says it will have stepped-access only.

This TfL image is a visualisation of the entrance.

I wonder if it should be step-free with a lift, as walking across to the lift in the centre, could be some way in bad weather.

  1. Plans for Old Street include removing all slope entrances with just stairs remaining together with one new entrance which will include lift access from street to subway / station entrance.

    Longer terms plans include using old lift shaft for new lift to create step free access to Northern and Great Northern lines but funding is still required.
