Abbey Wood Crossrail Station, London
Lang+Fulton / Fereday Pollard

Crossrail’s new station at Abbey Wood has been built over the railway tracks where the Elizabeth line terminates. From above, the building is shaped like a manta ray, its ‘wings’ extending into canopies sheltering staircases either side, which swoop down to platform level below.
The ceiling panels for the staircases and elevated walkways were made from galvanized steel grating panels, customised to a bespoke 66 x 22 mm aperture to provide an enhanced level of visual screening. Each panel was exactly contoured to match the demanding serpentine shape of the footbridge canopies.
For the Abbey Wood project, Lang+Fulton also supplied a galvanized grated screen to protect the overhead lines and a barrier fence to guard the edge of the station platform. In addition, an area beneath one of the staircases was secured with louvred screening panels and alternative access to the station was enclosed with an anti-projectile screen.
