Crossrail: Platform screen door installation

Project brief

Mane is the sole supplier of the Crossrail floor-to-ceiling platform screen door (PSD) installation for eight new underground stations of the Elizabeth Line. The platforms on the new stations are longer than most existing London Underground stations, with a platform length of over 250 metres – that means installing about 4 kilometres of platform screen doors in total.

Knorr-Bremse Rail System (UK) Limited, who was awarded the contract for the provision of platform screen doors for the project, will be testing the PSD system as well as training staff at its Wolverton facility near Milton Keynes. The screen doors will be installed, tested and commissioned by the end of 2017, with passenger service beginning on the new Elizabeth underground line at the end of 2018.
