AECOM is the lead design consultant for the major Bank underground station capacity upgrade project, one of London’s most complex infrastructure schemes.

AECOM is delivering a wide range of multidisciplinary services, including project management; design management and assurance; civil, structural, geotechnical, mechanical and electrical engineering; tunnelling; pedestrian flow modelling; and planning and environmental services. AECOM’s designs will include a new Northern line southbound-running tunnel that will create more platform space, interchange tunnels and an additional station entrance. Tunnelling will take place under iconic landmarks such as the Bank of England and Mansion House. The station will remain operational throughout the construction.

Set in the heart of London’s financial district, Bank station is one of the largest and most complex underground railway stations in the world. Nearly 100,000 passengers use this major interchange hub every morning rush hour and this figure is set to rise. The upgrade project will deliver a much-needed capacity increase by 2021.
