BLACKFRIARS underground station reopened today after a three year upgrade was completed.
The station is now larger and more accessible following the rebuild, and is expected to be used by over 40,000 passengers a day.
The work was part of a larger redevelopment of Blackfriars station which will see it span both sides of the Thames.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said today: ‘With its magnificent ticket hall, brand new lifts and escalators, and more than double the previous capacity, the rebirth of this central London station will improve the journeys of thousands of passengers every single day.
‘An incredible amount of hard work and expertise has been invested in these improvements, and Blackfriars is now set to become a truly world-class station.’
