London Tube demands Atlas' expertise

Last month, against fierce competition from other bidders, the Atlas Group won the gate automation contract for the Balfour Beaty-Carrillion joint venture East London Tube Extension project. Atlas' recommendations, which varied from the laid down specification, were accepted by the client TfL as preferable. The gates are now being manufactured, ready for installation in August. They will secure the tube switchgear against sabotage, misuse and vandalism.

Atlas' achievement shows that it is recognised as a professional company that is competent to undertake public works contracts at the highest level.

The project involves upgrading the entire existing tube network. Passengers will witness the biggest transformation in the Tube's history. TfL is planning to refurbish the entire underground rail network, from tracks to trains and signals to stations. The project works include:

  • More pleasant stations - most stations will get a facelift by 2012, restoring and protecting the heritage of old stations while completely modernising others (such as King's Cross St. Pancras).
  • Better access from street to train as lifts are installed, wider ticket gates and platform changes implemented.
  • Enhanced security.
  • Improved customer information.
