Decongestion Scheme via Multi Asset Framework Agreement (MAFA)
Due to space constraints Charing Cross Station concourse was highly congested resulting in passenger circulation becoming severely hindered, especially at peak periods.
Network Rail commissioned VolkerFitzpatrick to be the Principal Contractor who in turn commissioned Robinson Kenning & Gallagher to develop the client’s aspirations and produce a viable scheme to reduce Station congestion.
To address this the following elements of works were required at the station to alleviate the congestion on the concourse and to meet Networks Rails requirements for pedestrian flow up to 2026.
Demolition of the existing Island Retail Building on the Concourse.
Adaptation of the existing ticket barrier line to provide additional ticket gates & improve passenger flow.
Rationalisation of the existing concourse furniture such as Ticket Vending Machines and Seating.
Rationalisation/upgrading of the way finding signage within the concourse.
A listed building application technical support report was prepared by RKG and submitted by Network Rail.
Estimated project value of £4.2M
