TfL London Rail is currently undertaking a feasibility study for this proposal. This study includes a number of key considerations including: what access may be required for the pump room situated at the bottom of the shaft; what means of ventilation is required for the pump room and tunnel; any heritage considerations ; and the timing and staging of any construction within the wider construction project for the extension of the East London Line. TfL will be presenting the findings of this study to representatives from the Museum in June.
