Whitechapel Station Reopens On August 23rd

I have been told that Whitechapel station will reopen on Monday, the 23rd of August.

Apparently the station has put it out on Twitter.

When I visited this week and wrote Whitechapel Station – 10th August 2021, I did think that reopening wouldn’t be too far away.

As the station is closed this weekend, I shall be going on Monday to observe the progress.

If Whitechapel station gets handed over to Transport for London in the next few weeks, that will leave just Bond Street and Canary Wharf stations still to be completed.

For a few years now Crossrail have talked about opening without Bond Street station, so will TfL just lock the platform edge doors shut and go for as early opening of Crossrail as possible?

Canary Wharf station could also be treated in the same way.

It would certainly be an option to open Crossrail earlier than expected.

  1. Hopefully Whitechapel Station will follow the example set by Moorgate Station with opening including entrance and lifts to Overground/ Underground thus returning trade to the market outside.
