Crossrail’s new station at Abbey Wood has been built over the railway tracks where the Elizabeth line terminates. From above, the building is shaped like a manta ray, its ‘wings’ extending into canopies sheltering staircases either side which swoop down to platform level below.
For the Abbey Wood project, a Torino-22 fence was supplied to guard the edge of the station platform. The fence panels and posts were engineered in conformity with the required standards for a barrier loading.
Lang+Fulton were involved in serveral ares of the project and also supplied:
- a Torino-11 screen to protect the overhead lines
- DeltaBox-70 louvred screening panels to secure a storage area
- a Stretto-11 anti-projectile screen to enclose an external stair access to the station.
- Stretto-22 panels for the ceiling panels for the entrances and elevated walkways.
