ProjectBaker Street – Station Modernisation

Back to Projects

Transport for London construction managed the refurbishment of Baker Street Station as part of the lead up to the 150 year anniversary of the tube system. After a competitive tender process Links Signs were awarded the manufacture and installation of the new signage for the station.

Working with London Underground Capital Projects management team Links Signs produced new vitreous enamel signs throughout the station. The works were all undertaken as part of the new Collaborative Planning Strategy implemented by London Underground to ensure all contractors on site were aware of each other’s work and can potentially avoid any clashes on the sites and offer assistance to ensure the project run smoothly and on time.

As part of the project Links Signs were asked to design a solution to overcome some on-site issues. The first issue was due to Heritage constraints on the building – new lighting could not be installed to highlight the top steps from platforms 1-5 up into the ticket. Links Signs designed an LED lighting system into the bottom of a new sign that would light up the steps, and remove the need to install new lighting, thus removing the heritage interface.

The second issue was to design a hinged continuous frieze signage across the jubilee and Bakerloo line platforms.
