In advance of the project's submission to Westminster City Council, the architects of Tottenham Court Road station have released new images of the project. Of most interest is the dedicated Crossrail entrance and ticket hall on Oxford Street at the junction with Dean Street, with a rather bland office block sitting on top.

The £1billion station will span a kilometre from east to west and drop five floors below ground. The work thus far, which has seen much disruption around the area and the demolition of favoured nightspot the Astoria, has been in preparation for a project that engineers are likening with the scale of the Jubilee Line Extension stations. The main construction should begin next year.

With some of the fancier Crossrail station designs being crimped back for financial reasons, hopefully TCR will be something that Londoners can be proud of.

See other Crossrail station designs: Paddington, Isle of Dogs, and Whitechapel.
