Just a notice that there will be a public exhibition next week showing off the latest plans to upgrade the overcrowded Bank tube station.

As a station, it only just missed having 100 million passengers pass through it last year, which makes that tiny complex of tunnels about a third busier than Heathrow Airport.

A public consultation on the plans will be live online from 4 October until 8 November at tfl.gov.uk/bank and will be supported by a public exhibition at St Mary Abchurch in Abchurch Lane from 8th to 11th October, between 11am and 7pm each day.

The exhibition will include a three-dimensional model of the planned improvements (yay!), an architect’s animated film and displays showing greater detail of various aspects of the plans.

TfL staff will be on hand at the public exhibition to explain more about the plans and answer questions.

There was a public consultation two years ago, but the plans have been modified somewhat since then, gaining amongst other things, a travolator.

The upgrade will take until 2021 to complete, although a new entrance from the Waterloo & City Line should open up late in 2015.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    the whole issue of the bank upgrade seems to be a political one-i sense a barmy boris interference-the bank has tried to install new escalators in the past couple of years and the whole thing was a charade-staff call it a rehearsal cos the escalators were installed and then re-installed a complete cock up-this was kept from the public and lu said it was the first step of the upgrade-however when the escalators failed and irate passengers caused the station to be evacuated several times thru safety concern more transport police had to be employed to assist staff to evacuate and also prevent assaults-the only logical solution is to shut bank or at least only allow passengers to decamp-but now the politics starts and we are told its impossible to shut bank because of the square mile when in reality there are tube stations in walking distance-i am not a soothsayer but go ahead with the upgrade without shutting the station and there will be years of hell
