Victoria Station upgrade: New Tube entrance opens as part of £700m project

A new entrance to the Tube at Victoria Station has opened to the public after seven years of works. The entrance is the first part of a £700 million upgrade to the station to be completed after work started in 2009.

Transport for London said the development is set to be completed next year.

One commuter Jeremy Castle tweeted a picture of the new escalators along with the caption:"Shiny new entrance opens at Victoria station. It's so exciting, people are taking photos of escalators."

I have a question related to the building on the right of that same screen, will they actually torn her? If so, then I strongly oppose, I love the ornamentation it has. The new roof of the buildings looks great but still it would be pity to ruin the building that's already there.

I can't spot that very same ornamentation in the render that's why I reacted.

Ealing set for first major office scheme in a decade



Developer Commercial Estate Group has gained planning permission for the first major office development in the west London borough of Ealing for almost a decade.

The a 170,000 sq ft office development will rival office space in the West of London as well as Central London.

Demolition is due to commence in April paving the way for CEG to invest around £50m in the building project, which also includes some local improvements.

Nick Lee, Head of Commercial Development at CEG, said: “Despite the Brexit uncertainty, we are confident that Ealing offers a fantastic investment opportunity, due to the arrival of Crossrail and the fact that it doesn’t have the office stock to capitalise on the significant enquiries in the market place.

Sorry, my answer was for the person above you, who asked about the screen. We posted at the same time so I didn't see your question.

London Underground Northern Line extension tunnelling to start in March

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan announced on January 20 that tunnelling on London Underground’s Northern Line extension to Battersea is to begin in March.

Two tunnel boring machines supplied by NFM Technologies have been unveiled at Battersea and are undergoing final tests. They were shipped from NFM’s factory at Le Creusot in France before being reassembled in London earlier this month.

Each 650 tonne TBM can bore up to 30 m per day and requires a team of 50 people to operate. The TBMs have been named Helen and Amy after astronaut Helen Sharman and aviator Amy Johnson.

Excavation of the 5·2 m diameter twin tunnels at a depth of 26 m is expected to take six months and will require nearly 20 000 precast concrete segments to be installed. The tunnelling is expected to create 300 000 tonnes of spoil, with a further 380 000 tonnes coming from the two stations and other parts of the project.

Transport for London says that 92% of this will be loaded onto barges and taken along the River Thames to Goshems Farm in East Tilbury in Essex, where it will be used to create arable farmland.

‘Extending the line to Nine Elms and Battersea is going to be a real boost to south London, with the improved transport link helping to provide thousands of homes and jobs for Londoners’, said Khan.

Construction of the 3·3 km extension from Kennington was officially launched on November 23 2015. It is being undertaken by Ferrovial Agroman Laing O’Rourke under a six-year design-build contract awarded in 2014. Completion is due in 2020.

‘The Nine Elms regeneration programme is one of the greatest sources of new jobs and homes in the country and this would not be possible without the Tube link’, said leader of Wandsworth Council Ravi Govindia.
