The Design of Westminster Station (Jubilee Line Extension)

The design and construction of Westminster Station on the London Underground Jubilee Line project was both technically demanding and a complex undertaking. This paper is concerned with the design but not the construction. It sets out to describe the many and varied constraints imposed by the selected site,adjacent buildings and structures designed and built by others over the station whilst it was under construction.
