TfL unveils new plans for Southwark Tube station

Acanthus LW's proposals for a new entrance to Southwark Tube Station

Acanthus LW’s second entrance would enable redevelopment above MacCormac’s main hall

Transport for London has revealed proposals for a second entrance at Southwark Tube station in a move it says is designed to cope with steadily increasing passenger numbers.

The plans, created for the mayoral transport body by project architect Acanthus LW, would also aid the construction of a new building above Richard MacCormac’s celebrated main entrance to the station, completed in 1999.

TfL said around 17m passengers a year currently passed through Southwark’s ticket gates, with the figure expected to rise by about 40% over the next two decades.
