Answered By: 
The Mayor

Costs for London Underground stations vary considerably depending on the location of the station and the complexity of the scheme required. A deep level Tube station in central London, for example could require multiple lifts and extensive civil engineering work; a simpler scheme could entail two lifts and an over-bridge at an above ground station. However, even these two general examples could vary enormously taking into account the location and particular needs or constraints of each station. Therefore, it is not possible to quote an 'average' station cost figure.
