Tottenham Court Road Station Enhancement

Crossrail and Transport for London embarked on a joint project to redevelop Tottenham Court Road Station and construct a new station for Crossrail. The redevelopment had an estimated budget of £1bn. Furthermore, the ambitious project had to allow for the station to continue operating during the works.

As part of a joint venture, Taylor Woodrow and BAM Nuttall became the main construction contractors. After a competitive tender process, Links Signs won the manufacture and installation contract for new station signage at the redevelopment.

The works commenced late 2014 and completed in the summer of 2016. We designed our installations to work alongside the construction phases of the project. As a result, Links Signs produced signage on a “just in time” basis – to meet the opening requirements of each phase.

Over 191 main station signs were manufactured and installed. These included LED illuminated signs and bespoke signs to fit within the new glass cladding systems. Links Signs worked closely with other construction partners on the project to ensure the installations were co-ordinated smoothly. One of the project highlights is the new 27m LED illuminated fascia running around the station entrance.
