Stannah have announced a contract award to supply six escalators and five lifts, to Network Rail specifications, into the upgrade programme at London Waterloo station.
The company are now on site ready to meet a demanding seven week deadline for delivery of the lifts/escalator package.
The Stannah project team will be completing the work for Network Rail and main contractor Wessex Alliance/Skanska.
The timeframe has been highly accelerated to assist the whole project, with delays squeezing the lift and escalator install programme.
The rebuild is taking place at the former London Waterloo International Terminal area, which sits beneath a glass roof. This, together with the heat generated by the trains themselves, creates thermal expansion/contraction, so equipment needed modification.
The new part of the station will be connected to the main station via a brand new bridge and concourse area, currently under construction. The work forms part of the huge £800 million investment to boost capacity at Waterloo by 30% by December 2018.
