From April to August 2016 the Bakerloo line platforms at Paddington were closed while we renewed two escalators. We replaced virtually every component, extending their life by a further 20 years and improving their reliability. Find out more about our lift and escalator work.
Our engineers also continued digging a new 165m tunnel underneath the station so that customers will be able to change between the Bakerloo line and the new Elizabeth line from 2018.
