Our Ref: FOI-2070-2223
Thank you for your request received on 22 November 2022 asking for information about the current costs of some of the Elizabeth line stations.
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require.
As previously advised, the final costs have not been calculated. Please see the most recent price calculations for each of the requested stations below. Please note that these figures represent the current costs for the Tier 1 station contractors only and do not include systemwide or other interfaces costs. As of November 2022:
Tottenham Court Road
In accordance with the FOI Act, we are not obliged to supply some of the information as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to information under section 43(2) – prejudice to commercial interests.
In this instance the exemption has been applied to the current costs for Bond Street and Canary Wharf Stations. Disclosure would be likely to prejudice our commercial interests as these contracts are still live and negotiations with the contractors have not been completed.
The use of this exemption is subject to an assessment of the public interest in relation to the disclosure of the information concerned. TfL recognises the need for openness and transparency by public authorities but in this instance the public interest in ensuring that TfL is able to obtain the best value for public money outweighs the general public interest in increasing transparency of our processes.
If this is not the information you are looking for please feel free to contact me.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.
