Reconfiguration of St Johns Hill Entrance for Network Rail
The St John’s Hill entrance to Clapham Junction Station, one of the busiest transport hubs in Europe, had become very congested. The pedestrian flow of passengers through the platform subway was being badly restricted by the gateline position and limited circulation space.
Robinson Kenning & Gallagher were employed by South West Trains (SSWT) to redesign the area to enable better circulation and passenger movement whilst increasing ticket facilities.
The design solution reduced ‘back of house’ space of the existing ticket office to enable an increase in front of house circulation and ticketing facilities. A new gateline position with increased numbers of gates (including automatic wide aisle gates) was installed and existing tenancies were relocated and refurbished.
Project Value: £1.5m
