East Croydon Station

East Croydon Station Bridge was completed in 2009, a project conceived by Network Rail and Croydon Council to develop designs for a structure that would both aid congestion relief for the rail infrastructure as well provide a catalyst for development around the station. The client commissioned Studio Egret West and Hawkins\Brown Architects to develop a master plan and designs for the new station footbridge that would enable unobstructed step free public access across the station. The design of the footbridge was developed so that it could be assembled using a kit of parts on the adjoining vacant site and was push launched across a live operational station, an operation that had never been undertaken before in the UK. The bridge weighed over 1000 tonnes and had a length of over 100 metres.
