Gatwick Airport Station Redevelopment

Gatwick Airport Rail Station Redevelopment was a major project undertaken to improve passenger congestion and access for passengers travelling on the London to Brighton routes.

The project involved the construction of a new 12 car platform on the East side of the existing station, major structural alterations to platforms 5 and 6 and the concourse building above to allow the installation of new elevators and lifts shafts.

Volker Fitzpatrick appointed Kilnbridge to undertake major civil engineering and structural works packages as part of their main contract works worth over £50m.

Kilnbridge designed and installed major jacking systems on temporary steelwork towers to the concourse building to allow the cutting and removal of existing support members and the construction of new columns and beams in new locations, to facilitate the realignment and construction of new track

This complex initial phase of works was followed by the erection of a new circulation building on the new platform, complete with new Link Bridge, canopies, platform barriers and end gates. All elements were provided with a range of Network Rail compliant finishes including N1, N4, N9 & N17.
