Dynamic station and transport interchange at Abbey Wood marking the geographical start of Crossrail, the most ambitious and advanced railway network in Europe
Abbey Wood Station is a completely new station on the South East Spur of Crossrail, denoting the pivotal start and conclusion of Crossrail's journey to and from central London.
Currently a Network Rail station for the North Kent Line, the new station now accommodates both the new Elizabeth Line and Southeastern Rail services.
The station, formed to serve the four new lines below includes pedestrian access across the railway and public transport interchange. Ancillary design works include the implementation of an extensive urban realm strategy with Urban Movement, foot bridges and other structures along the 2km project.
Fereday Pollard have successfully developed the station design through all the GRIP stages working as lead architects for the multi-disciplinary project which includes PB/WSP, Tony Gee & Partners, CCD, Balfour Beatty and Network Rail.
Fereday Pollard have maintained a design vision for the station through the GRIP stages and believe that the overall station design has created a new and vibrant architectural focus for Abbey Wood and a greatly enhanced passenger experience for those using the station.
