Our interior design team balance multiple design criteria such as regulations, capacities, and vehicle envelopes to create attractive, durable passenger environments. Our design for East London Line set new standards for high density UK metros, providing passengers with modern interior spaces with wide intercar connections. Innovative design features included open layout, twin handrail groups and prominent real time passenger information displays.
