London Loves Business Article

The mayor’s office revealed that Boris Johnson had discussed the plans with Chambers at the weekend, with the conclusion that more details would be put forward on potential sites and the level of work required for the renovation plans.

Chambers, 38, said: “We’ve set up the construction teams, the finance availability and the investment to renovate underground space.”

He revealed that he is aiming for a pre-London 2012 opening for the first site - Brompton Road station, which has been out-of-use for several decades. The MoD-owned site served as an anti-aircraft base during the Second World War.

The Old London Underground was founded by Chambers two years ago in a bid to breathe new life into forgotten sites.

The renovation plans would see a members’ club opened at the site.
