Advanced Ensures Passenger Safety at London Bridge Station

24 Feb 2020

48 million UK commuters and 80 new businesses who travel and operate within London Bridge Station each year are now protected by MxPro 5 fire panels from fire systems leader Advanced.

London Bridge Station, the fourth busiest station in the UK, has undergone a high-profile £1billion redevelopment that has seen passenger capacity almost double. The five-year redevelopment, the biggest rail infrastructure transformation in over a century, was directed by operators Network Rail and has seen the construction of a 15-platform street-level concourse longer than the Shard - another London landmark protected by Advanced fire panels.

MxPro 5 is the company’s highest performance analogue addressable panel, approved to EN54 parts 2, 4 and 13 offering four detector protocols and a completely open installer network that enjoys free training and support. MxPro panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into multi-loop, high speed, 200 panel networks covering huge areas and thousands of field devices.

Amanda Hope, UK Business Development Manager for Advanced, commented: “London Bridge Station is one of the capital’s most important transport hubs and a high-quality and reliable fire system capable of meeting the complexities of the site and protecting occupants is essential. We are proud to have our British made products installed in such an established London landmark.

“Advanced is renowned for providing some of the most intuitive fire panels on the market. We have extensive experience working within the rail sector and a project such as London Bridge Station is an excellent opportunity to showcase what we can offer, delivering a future proof solution that provides Network Rail with the option to expand and enhance the system in the future.” 

Advanced are members of the Rail Industry Fire Association (RIFA) and have panels installed in a number of other rail-related buildings, including the Tottenham Court Road Crossrail station, almost 100 London Underground stations, the Hitachi Rail Europe factory in Newton Aycliffe and the Tyne & Wear Metro.

Lewis Atherton, Programme Manager, from Network Rail, said: “As a vital transport hub for commuters and visitors travelling into London, safety has been a key consideration throughout the development process of London Bridge Station in order for passengers to make their connections as smoothly, efficiently and enjoyably as possible.

“As well as the major track upgrade, a new rail underpass and platform widenings and extensions, the station now also includes almost 100 new shops, cafes and restaurants. With their proven track record of managing fire safety within the railway industry we felt entirely confident in the solutions Advanced offered.”
