KONE was chosen to supply and install 24 escalators for the redevelopment of London Bridge railway station. KONE was selected as the supplier for the station on the back of its overall design solution which primarily focuses on smooth People Flow® and its demonstration of eco-efficiency.
The plans for modernizing London Bridge station were unveiled in 2011 and KONE has been involved in the project from the start. The overall goal of the rail project is to cater for more people and to increase rail links. KONE's 24 new TransitMaster® 140 escalators will help ensure that all areas of the station can be quickly accessed and keep passengers moving in the station area throughout the day.
The overall project is part of a wider scheme funded by the ThamesLink program to upgrade the rail network in Great Britain. As well as increasing the number of platforms at London Bridge and providing lifts and escalators for step-free access, there will also be improved links between the Tube and bus network. The upgrades to London Bridge are expected to be completed in 2018.
