Victoria Station Upgrade

Securing consent for major infrastructure improvements

The Secretary of State for Transport made the Victoria Station Upgrade Transport and Works Act Order and directed that planning permission be deemed to be granted. This scheme is a major upgrade of the underground facilities at Victoria Station in Westminster proposed by London Underground Ltd (LUL).
