Entry Description

The Paddington Integrated Project comprises a set of overlapping projects for different stakeholders on land to the north of Paddington station. These include a new taxi facility with ramped highway access, a new concourse for the London Underground station, a new entrance to the stations together with canal-side landscaping, a circulation core connecting platform and taxi levels and improvements to the platform environment and station facilities. The design is also future-proofed for a 14-storey over-site development above the LU station. The PIP works are a demonstration of the value of genuine collaboration and a commitment to working closely together. On a difficult site and in a sensitive context the project has delivered an elegant design and met all the stakeholder objectives, has had a significant positive impact on station operation and the experience of station users, and has set the stage for future expansion.
