Merson Group were selected to deliver four of the major underground Crossrail stations for MTR; Abbey Wood, Canary Wharf, Farringdon & Woolwich. Working with main contractors on delivering the program on all stations except Canary Wharf, where because of the package of works we were employed as the principle contractor.
Merson were involved in the initial prototyping and developed the signage for a below ground platform. The full-size mock-up gave Crossrail the opportunity to decide whether any design modifications were necessary prior to the main construction of new stations. The mock-up was used to inform a number of key design decisions including the optimisation of platform signage to assist passengers during train entry and egress as well as the location of platform information displays.
The signage really completes the station and represents the massive engineering feat that Crossrail is. Looking forward to traveling along the line soon.
