New control room at London Bridge Station goes live

It was great to see the new control room at London Bridge Station go live in May.  CCD supported the design of the room as part of our work on the redevelopment of the station with WSP and Grimshaws.

We helped the project with a participatory design process for the room through running a full scale mock-up trial with the Network Rail operations team along with the train operators.  The control room is an integrated control that brings together Network Rail and TOC operators in the same workspace.

Our work included a full ergonomic design of the control room layout and the equipment layout on the workstations which was developed through a day-in-the-life simulation (see images below).  The equipment layout was developed in collaboration with Fourway who were upgrading the control systems.
