Silicon Roundabout – 28th August 2021

The big push started today to open the new entrance to Old Street Station in Cowper Street.

According to this page on the TfL web site, which is entitled, Old Street Roundabout, these changes will happen on the 31st August 2021.

  • The new entrance at Cowper Street will open and will provide direct access for customers to the station.
  • Subway 1 (northeast exit) will be permanently closed. Subway 3 (southwest exit) will remain open
  • The staircase at Subway 4 (northwest exit), will re-open and the ramp at Subway 4 will permanently close. The green line leading to Moorfields Eye Hospital will be reinstated along the stairs

I took these pictures from a 21 bus, this morning.


  1. The first four pictures show the North-West exit, which is Subway 4.
  2. The sides of the steps at Subway 4 seem just to need application ofsurface finish and handrails.
  3. In the last picture, it looks like the contractors are getting ready to resurface the South-East corner.

I also took this picture of the Cowper Street entrance yesterday.

The entrance looks to be not far from finished behind the hoarding.

If I get a chance, I’ll go back and have a look sometime in the weekend.
