London Underground Upgrades To Northern Line and Bank Station Gather Pace

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on New Civil Engineer.

It all sounds like good progress and these are some points from the article.

Note that no date is given for the Bank station blockade to connect the new tunnels or completion of the works.

Under Future Station Upgrade And Expansion, in the Wikipedia entry for the station, this is said.

Before the project can be completed, the Northern line Bank branch will have to close for several months to allow the existing line to be connected to the new running tunnels. As of October 2020, this closure is planned to occur in late 2021/early 2022.

As I suspect other works like those in the new passenger tunnels can go on unhindered by the track works, I would suspect that a few months after the new tracks are connected, the station upgrade will be substantially finished.

I certainly, think that the full upgrade could open complete with the new entrance on Cannon Street sometime in 2022 or if not early in 2023.

It has been reported that the oversite development on the new Cannon Street entrance will be done after the station is complete.
