Town Hall Station escalator replacement and upgrade work

Town Hall Station is undergoing an upgrade with new floor tiling, ceiling and ventilation improvement works taking place around the concourse area.

From 9 January 2017, the two wooden escalators on platforms 5 and 6 will be replaced to improve safety and reliability.

During this work, allow extra travel time and take extra care when accessing platforms 5 and 6 and the concourse, especially during peak-time.

Follow the signs to the nearest available escalators, stairs or lift to get on and off the platform. Please see station staff if you need assistance.

Other improvements at Town Hall include an upgraded fire detection, sprinkler and alarm system, installation of a smoke exhaust system throughout the concourse and enhancement of emergency lighting and exit signage.

To minimise inconvenience, the escalators will be replaced one at a time. Other upgrade work will take place overnight and during trackwork weekends to avoid busy periods.

Work is expected to be completed by late 2017.

We appreciate your patience and understanding while this important work is completed.
