Wood Lane finally opens!

12 10 2008

Hi all

As part of the redevelopment taking place in Shepherd’s Bush, Wood Lane station finally opens today (12th October). ┬áThe station is situated between what is now called Shepherd’s Bush Market and Latimer Road on the Hammersmith & City line. ┬áThe station is a 250 metre walk from White City on the Central line. It is there for the Westfield shopping centre which opens at the end of October.

I haven’t made a personal visit to the new station, but I have every intention to do so and will take photos of the newest station on the London Underground.

What do you think of the new station? Let me know!

The line diagrams show it all!

Hi all

In the last blog entry about Shepherd’s Bush Central line station reopening (see entry below dated 5th October), I missed out something very interesting that I forgot to mention and thought I would share with you. On one Central line train, I noticed a brand new line diagram which I guess has been put up in the train in preparation for the opening of the new stations and it even includes interchanges at Shepherd’s Bush with Overground (100m walk) and White City with Wood Lane (a 250 metre walk from White City). Here’s the proof of the pudding…

Assuming it all goes to plan, Wood Lane is due to open on 12th October (this coming Sunday). So more exciting new things to come! I also assume that a new Tube Map will be out by this time.
