Project Summary

As part of the nationwide Network Rail Access For All programme to improve accessibility at train stations, VEDA Associates were appointed by Spence as lead designer to deliver the GRIP 5 multi discipline detailed design at Blackhorse Station. The scheme involved the proposed part removal of the existing non-compliant precast concrete high level access walkway from the existing LUL station and the design of a new 1:20 DDA complaint steel walkway, which was to provide access to the existing over bridge. The scheme also involved the implantation of two lifts, one on each platform, which again is to provide step free access to the existing overbridge.
