The original Jubilee Line, which opened in the 1979, consisted of 2½ miles of new tunnel from Baker Street to Charring Cross and a ‘take-over’ of the Stanmore branch of the Bakerloo Line north of Baker Street.
To expand the Jubilee Line further it was essential that the route was safeguarded which, in particular, placed restrictions on the deep foundations of skyscrapers so that a path was left for the route of the line.
The extended Jubilee Line introduced ‘think-big’ type of thinking to the construction of underground railways and this is in particularly obvious in the construction of the stations on the extension which are very different from previous Underground stations.

 Engineering consequences of ground conditions on NATM works at London Bridge Station, Jubilee Line Extension   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
However, when increase in lining stress is plotted against the distance from the face, Fig.12b, it may be seen that beyond 10 to 12m, restart of excavation has no effect on the lining and therefore, no effect on the ground at that location.
The tunnel linings squat in response to the loading regime, such that the tunnel soffit moves downward whilst the walls move outwards.
Therefore, the lining moves downward due to ground loading and the lining walls move outwards presumably reversing the ground relaxation caused by plastic deformation.
