ProjectTottenham Court Road – Station Enhancement

Back to Projects

Crossrail and Transport for London embarked on a joint project to redevelop the existing London Underground Station and construct a new station for Crossrail – the project was estimated to be worth £1bn.

The joint venture of Taylor Woodrow and BAM Nuttall were appointed as the main contractors to undertake the work. As part of the project the station signage was tendered and after a competitive tender process Links Signs were awarded the manufacture and installation of the new station signage for the new upgraded London Underground Station.

The works commenced late 2014 with planned completion in the summer of 2016. The installation programme was designed to work alongside the construction phases of the project, ensuring signs were designed and fabricated on a “just in time” basis to meet the opening requirements of each section.

Over 191 main station signs were manufactured and installed – including LED Illuminated signs and bespoke signs to fit within the new glass cladding systems. Links Signs worked closely with the other trades on the project to ensure all designs were co-ordinated and installation went smoothly. One of the highlights of the project is the new 27m LED illuminated fascia that runs around the new entrance to the station.
