Woodlane tube station new build
From the success of the work undertaken on the white city sidings project, Encompass Engineering were requested by Westfield construction to provide a similar engineering assurance role in the construction of the Woodlane tube station opposite the BBC.
Woodlane station was originally opened in 1908 for the olympics and first closed on the 31st October 1914 shortly after world war 1. It re-opened but finally closed on the 24th October 1959 following a fire. Over the following years the station was totally demolished.
In 2007 Westfield construction started the construction of a new woodlane station on the viaduct crossing woodlane to service the increased passenger traffic expected for the construction of the new Westfield shopping centre in shepherds bush.
Encompass Engineering were brought in too provide engineering assurance in the design, installation, test and commissioning of the systems being incorporated into the station for it's operation.
The project was completed and the station opened in conjunction with the shopping centre in October 2008.
