Stannah at Kingston Station

19 May 2009

The installation of new Stannah bespoke passenger lifts is part of the ‘Access for All’ programme of station improvements - funded by the DfT and delivered by Network Rail – which provides step–free access for all travellers, when needed.

A recent excellent example of the ‘Access for All’ programme is the installation of two new Stannah lifts at Kingston station, changing the face of a former no-go area for less abled people where one platform was only approachable over a steep flight of steps and the other via a steep ramp.
The station now boasts two 16–person, 1200kg, hydraulic-drive passenger lifts built to Network Rail specifications, including telephone links and CCTV. The lifts have operating panels on both sides to ensure all travellers can use them easily and independently.

Stannah have recently carried out new lift installations on stations at Balham, Hazelmere, Herne Hill, Kidderminster, Taunton, Exeter, London Waterloo and London Victoria. In addition, a major project at Clapham Junction is just beginning, which will include the installation of multiple new lifts to improve access for all.
