Project: Stratford Station – Enabling Works – Escalators 1 & 2
Client: Tube Lines Limited
Works Value: £80,000
D & D Rail were contracted with the enabling works associated with the replacement of Escalators 1 & 2 at Stratford Station.
The enabling works consisted of the temporary removal and replacement of glass panels and metal barriers to allow the new escalators to be transported into the station. We were also to allow for the protection of station assets, removal and reinstatement of signage, information boards, handrails, barriers and panels within the footprint of the escalators.
Metal hoardings were erected around the station staircases and escalators to protect the public and allow works to continue during traffic hours. Finally the terrazzo floor tiles within the footprint of the escalators were removed and replaced with new once the escalators had been replaced.
