The project

The project involved the construction of a shaft and associated connecting tunnels within Green Park Underground Station to allow the installation of two lifts to provide step free access for the two underground lines which serve Green Park. 

The shaft and tunnels were to be constructed close to existing underground infrastructure and pass close to an existing escalator which was susceptible to ground movements.

Capita Symonds was lead designer for Gallagher.  This included specialist support to them for programming and environmental work as well as the delivery of a design assured to Tube Line / London Underground standards.
