Information Session on Bakerloo Line Closure at Paddington Station 16 March

Bakerloo Line not stopping at Paddington Station, 2 April to mid August

Drop in session with TFL – Wednesday 16 March 12 noon to 2.00 pm

Paddington Station Board Room: upstairs in the Lawn area (between Patisserie Valerie and the Mad Bishop and Bear PH)

Major improvement works at Paddington Tube station are set to begin in April in order to boost capacity at the station, renew the escalators and to construct a new passenger tunnel in preparation for the arrival of Crossrail.

The work is the latest part of a huge programme of modernisation of London Underground that is seeing major stations, trains, track and signalling being updated or replaced to provide more capacity and reliability for a growing city.

The improvement at Paddington will mean that Bakerloo line trains will not stop at the station from Saturday 2 April until mid-August. During this time, Transport for London (TfL) engineers will carry out a major renewal of both of the heavily-used escalators serving the Bakerloo line.

During this time it means some of your staff and visitors will need to alter their current travel route.

PaddingtonNow BID is holding drop-in sessions to help people prepare for these changes, offering alternative options, walking maps and route planning tools which will help keep you and your business moving.

Staff from Transport for London and Network Rail will be on hand to answer questions and provide more details.

Please let us know if you would like some maps  or to register your interest in attending the drop in session by email to marisa.barrocas@paddingtonnow.co.uk/wordpress
