Dalston Kingsland Booking Hall
Walker Construction was employed to carry out refurbishment works at Dalston Kingsland Overground Station. The existing booking hall at the station was constructed in the 1980’s. It was decided due to increased usage of the Overground network the existing booking hall and gateline was insufficient to handle the passenger flow at peak times. To the immediate left of station was an existing disused retail unit that was to be incorporated into the station booking wall.
This project was to complete a Design & Build contract for the construction of a new 52 metre pedestrian/cycleway bridge. This included associated works of footpaths and lighting to provide access to the new Altira Business Park in Herne Bay, Kent in collaboration with NuSteel Structures, WSS Construction Consultants (our internal Design Division), Urban & Civic and Kent County Council.
