The subway is part of a £25 million scheme to transform the station and deliver major improvements for Londoners and businesses in the surrounding area. The subway will provide ground level north to south access beneath the existing railway line, and replace the footbridge which was taken out in early February.
The concrete structure, which is the length of five Hackney taxi cabs, was built on land to the north of the station, ready for it to be put into place underneath the railway over the Easter weekend.
The contractor had a 99 hour possession to complete the works. Working for the main contractor we created 99 images to visually communicate each hour of the complex and time critical works. This helped the contractor team to visually assess programme against actual progress, enabling them to take any necessary action or adjustments to avoid a late completion.
