Elizabeth Line Bond Street Station To Open On 24 October

Transport for London has announced that Bond Street station on the Elizabeth Line will open on 24 October 2022, subject to final approvals. The new station will provide even greater connectivity to the area for workers and visitors. With journey times from Heathrow to Bond Street at just 36 minutes, and from Reading to Bond Street in 56 minutes, almost 140,000 Elizabeth line passengers are expected to use the station each day.

Bond Street will be one of the key stations on the central section of the Elizabeth line. The brand-new station will feature two new entrances and ticket halls at street level at Davies Street and Hanover Square.

Trains from Paddington and Abbey Wood will stop at Bond Street from 24 October, and initially there will be a train service every five minutes.

From 6 November the Elizabeth line will start running a seven day service to include Sundays, providing easier access to Marylebone and the West End at weekends.

From that date trains from Heathrow, Reading and Shenfield will be running direct into the central tunnels of the Elizabeth line, which means there will be a train at Bond Street every two to three minutes, seven days a week.

Overall, the new Elizabeth line brings an additional 1.5 million people within 45 minutes of central London and increases central London’s rail capacity by 10%. Recent projections by Transport for London show that passenger numbers at West End stations are expected to increase by 22.5m by 2026.

Penny Alexander, Chief Executive of Baker Street Quarter Partnership, said: “This is fantastic news for Marylebone and for the West End, providing even easier access for the many working here and those visiting our fantastic range of stores, eateries and attractions.”
