The Vauxhall Underground Station modernization exemplifies Transport for London’s investment in projects that support economic growth, employment opportunities, and housing development in London’s Vauxhall, Nine Elms, and Battersea areas.
Transport for London and Bechtel have previously worked together on such London Underground projects as the Jubilee Line Extension, the Northern Line upgrade, and Green Park Tube Station.
We saved Transport for London about one-fifth the project cost (nearly $15 million) by proposing an innovative way to construct the new elevator shaft from below ground level and using sprayed-concrete-lining techniques. This approach not only cut construction costs but also yielded savings in utility diversions and lessened environmental impact.
The project won Renovation/Upgrading Project of the Year in the International Tunnelling Association Tunnelling Awards in 2016.
Our Vauxhall project team is at work
- Reconfigured the station’s ticket hall to accommodate extra ticket gates and wide-aisle gates
- We are completing the refurbishment of the station’s subways, ticket hall, and stairs
- Installed a new shaft and elevator between the ticket hall and platforms, providing passengers step-free access to the Victoria Underground line trains.
