As part of Marble Arch London BID’s partnership with Transport for London and London Underground to deliver a facelift for Edgware Road Station (Circle, District, Hammersmith & City Line), the station has received a large Legible London map in the Cabbell Street entrance. Marble Arch London BID is proud to help create and host this map – a first of its kind and size to be implemented by TfL for its stations.
This enhancement is the final instalment of works achieved through LU and TfL’s Ambience Partnership, which saw a number of stations across London bid for improvements that are jointly funded. This fund sees BIDs, like Marble Arch London, and business groups collaborate with London Underground to improve both the station interior and its external spaces.
As a permanent fixture to the station, the map indicates a 10-minute walking range, as well as an exhaustive street index.
The Ambience Partnership has allowed for the following improvements at Edgware Road Station (Circle, District, Hammersmith & City Line):
- Improved signage at the Cabbell Street entrance to help passengers differentiate and navigate between the two Edgware Road stations;
- Removal of graffiti from the Cabbell Street entrance;
- A new coffee concession at the station’s main entrance;
- New maps and frames at the Marylebone Road entrance;
- Replacement of the roundel at the Marylebone Road entrance;
- Painting of the Marylebone Road entrance and internal staircase to platforms;
- A large Legible London wayfinding map in the main ticket hall to help customers with their onward journeys;
- Painting of columns at the Cabbell Street façade;
- Painting of the wooden pedestrian overbridge between platforms;
- Replacement of missing tiles in the ticket hall.
