February 2015 Latest news After four years of major construction work, London Underground (LU) opens its new Ticket Hall at Tottenham Court Road station. With thanks to Taylor Woodrow and Bam Nuttall and their suppliers. Christmas working success Taking advantage of reduced passenger numbers over the festive period clearly made sense. As a result of successful collaboration between TfL and suppliers, key projects at Victoria Station and Earl’s Court were able to carry out and complete essential works during the quieter periods. Thanks to a great example of partnering with our suppliers Costain and Laing O'Rourke, London Underground were able to bring Bond Street station back in to full operation three weeks ahead of schedule. The London Transport Museum raised more than Â£260,000 for the museum at its annual Covent Garden dinner at the end of last year. Thank you to everyone who attended or contributed towards sponsorship. Email for more information for more information about this year’s event.
