Bank Station is a London Underground (LU) station located in the City of London financial district. It is a key interchange served by five lines, namely the Northern (NL), Central (CL), Waterloo & City (W&C), and the Docklands Light Railway (DLR), and at the Monument end of the same station complex, the District and Circle lines (D&C). The Bank Station Capacity Upgrade (BSCU) is a large scale underground expansion project intended to increase capacity for future forecast demand at Bank/Monument Station, maximise savings in journey times, provide Step-Free Access to all Northern line and DLR, and improve emergency fire and evacuation protection measures for the station. The present paper focuses on the extensive numerical modelling carried out to analyse the SCL structures, ground behaviour and also to perform the LU Civil Asset damage assessment (Deep Tube Tunnel Assessment – DTTA) for the impacts of the underground construction works on the adjacent LU assets.
