A Last Look At Bank Station Before Shutdown

On Sunday, I took a last look at the Northern Line before its closure on January 15th until mid-May 2022.


  1. The tunnel without cladding on the wall is the Southbound tunnel.
  2. The Southern tunnel will be opened up and will become a platform for the Northern tunnel.
  3. The doors in the Southern tunnel will lead to the new Southern tunnel, which is a number of metres to the West.
  4. The last two pictures are on the Central Line.

I had a brief chat with staff and they are not sure yet, if the Waterloo and City Line will be open during the closure.

  1. That “ Back To The Future “ poster seems appropriate given that when this area re-opens commuters will be coming back to the future Bank Station!

    Original plans were for lifts to the Central Line making it step free but this was changed to escalators meaning the central line will remain as the only inaccessible line at Bank Station it’s a pity an acceding lift as found on Crossrail was not included with escalators!

    When this scheme is completed Bank Station will become an even more complex station given most of the existing station will remain in use .

    While the problem of the curved platforms on the central line which create gaps and a lot of screeching noise will remain !
