Whitechapel Station Is Getting A Trendy Makeover And It Looks Epic


Pictures of what the new Whitechapel station will look like after undergoing its two year transformation have been released and they’re really kind of trendy. With glass, steel and a grass roof, you wouldn’t expect any less from an E1 postcode.


Building work started this week, meaning commuters will be forced to use a temporary entrance further down Whitechapel Road for two years while the entrance is rebuilt and the ticket hall totally revamped. Improvement works will also include introducing totally step-free access to the station, meaning for the first time in its 140 years of existence, disabled passengers will not have any problems getting from the trains out onto the street.


The highlight for us? Undoubtedly the sedum roof – a very green way of covering roofs and a great terrain for sunbathing on… Someone have a word with Boris? Customers can look forward to a brighter, more airy experience when they board a Crossrail train. The only downside? It’s going to be a bit of a wait.


Ah well, at least we’ve got the longest slide in the world to look forward to this year…
