Austin's Lane - Ickenham

Client: London Underground

Project Overview​


  • This was the first KITEStep installation in April 2017.

  • The previous access was a muddy slope, used regularly by London Underground personnel for access to fence and cable inspections.

  • The KITEStep solution was a 900mm wide access that followed the bank contours over a relatively shallow gradient, significantly reducing the risk of slips, trips and falls in a remote location.

  • The solution included a modular KITE Bridge to span a culvert, which enabled unimpeded access for any personnel walking the route.
