Answer for Disused Underground stations and tunnels

Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL has a number of disused stations across the network. Many of these stations are integral to the operational railway, and there is no intention of disposing of these sites. TfL is currently actively investigating a number of sites to understand whether they can be developed in partnership with third parties. It will be assessing potential innovative uses of these sites and the additional revenue that these uses may bring. Any additional revenue generated will be reinvested back into improving the transport network.

 

Once plans are confirmed, TfL will provide you with an update.
