Links Signs were awarded the contract to design, manufacture and install the new wayfinding signage at Bond Street Station. This package of works was part of an overall £300 million upgrade of the Tube Station. The upgrade works are designed to deliver a 30 percent increase in passenger capacity at the station. Major works included the opening of the new entrance and ticket hall on the north side of Oxford Street at Marylebone Lane. The new entrance also provides step-free access for the first time at the station.
The contract was awarded in August 2011, with the £300 million project being delivered as a joint Venture by Costain and Laing O’Rourke in late 2017. As well as the new entrance, the works also included a new ticket hall with five new gates, two new escalators and two new interchange tunnels to help ease congestion. Passenger numbers at the station are planned to increase to 225,000 a day when the Elizabeth Line opens. At present, more than 185,000 people use Bond Street station daily.
Links Signs manufactured all Vitreous Enamel Way Finding signage and Supplementary signage in their production facility in Hastings, East Sussex. The signs fabricated included LED illuminated signs, non-illuminated signs and trackside signage. Links Signs also fabricated and installed the iconic London Underground Roundel to the front of the new entrance.

Links Signs took on the challenge to provide the awards for the first Transport for London Supplier Awards. Using products and materials that are supplied to TfL for our station signage, Links created very impressive plaques for our winners and runners up. Throughout the production process Links kept TfL up to date with images, delivery schedule and were always on hand to clarify any queries. We look forward to working with them again next year.Amanda Green – Transport for London

Links Signs successfully managed a complex project overseeing the manufacture and installation of 48 panels to create a bespoke mural on the Transport for London (TfL) owned bridge and the station entrance at Northwood Hills station. Links ensured not only that all the technical and engineering requirements of TfL were met but also that the extensive colour hues specified by mural artists Gordon Collett and Cosmo Sarson were achieved. The finished result is wonderful, as summed up by Mayor of London Boris Johnson when he visited ‘My God, it’s beautiful! Did we do this? The murals – they’re sensational!’ He added: ‘I think it’s all fantastic, really imaginative. I’m very proud.’Helena Webster – Town Centre Improvements Team Manager, London Borough of Hillingdon
