West Ham Station Enhancement

  • Sector:Transport
  • Client:Olympic Delivery Authority
  • Location:West Ham, London
  • Value:£3.7m

Barhale were contracted, by the Olympic Delivery Authority, to undertake the £3.7 million scheme to install both temporary and permanent access structures to West Ham Station. This provided a pedestrian route for travel between West Ham Station and The Greenway, for access to the Olympic Park. The temporary structures were dismantled post-Olympic Games and stored for possible re-use in the future. The project was split into three phases:

Phase 1
Barhale installed a long temporary footbridge with two flights of stairs over the West Ham District Line. The walkway was positioned on 50No Screw Piles, embedded in the East Bound LU Embankment.

Phase 2
Construction of a temporary staircase with a 16 passenger disabled lift between Manor Road and the Greenway. Barhale reconstructed a 300m permanent step free DDA compliant access ramp from Manor Road, running parallel to the Greenway.

Phase 3
Barhale dismantled part of the temporary works once the Olympics finished, with potential for the steel walkway and staircase to be re-used in the future.
