Old Street station is currently undergoing a major upgrade which includes works to remove the outdated 1960s roundabout and create a transformed environment that is safer for cycling and walking. The work will see the northwest arm of the roundabout close permanently to all traffic, creating a major new public space with improved walking and cycling access to Old Street station.
Old Street is one of London’s busiest tube stations with over 40 thousand journeys starting from the station on weekdays according to the latest TfL data. This puts it in the top 10% of London tube stations for footfall. Working with DMC Contracts Ltd. and Morgan Sindall, AATi are in the process of supplying our high-performance long-lasting pedestrian surface solution that this project demands. Work began just before the effects of the Covid pandemic hit, despite this the project is due to complete early 2022.
Our cast metal anti-slip stair nosing’s offer a cost-effective solution with unrivaled performance, considering ‘whole of life’ costs. Many of our nosing’s typically lasting 20+ years and have precedent in high footfall locations such as Victoria, Liverpool Street, Tottenham Court Road Stations. AATi was the sole supplier for the entire Crossrail project and have been specified on HS2.
