This standard applies to:

Any escalator already installed and operating on the London Underground (LU) network at the time of issue of this standard.

Installation of new escalators as part of a new station or station expansion on the LU network. This shall consist of a newly constructed station box or shaft for the installation of escalators and associated station infrastructure, either constructed on land that provides a new station or adds additional footprint to an existing station. The spatial requirements of Attachment 1 shall be met.

Installation of new escalators in existing infrastructure (such as a new shaft between running tunnels), it is recognised in this instance that spatial constraints may be present. The spatial requirements of Attachment 1 shall be met, and where this is not possible, the installation shall not result in spatial or access arrangements that are worse than the existing installation.

Any new escalator installation, utilising an existing escalator truss.

Escalators shall be installed in accordance with the requirements of Building Regulations, BS EN115-1 and Station Planning Guidelines.

This standard needs to be followed by those responsible for specifying, designing installing or maintaining escalators and their environment on the LU network. The contents of this standard shall be followed at all times.

This standard does not apply to other modes of transport such as London Overground (LO) and Docklands Light railway (DLR).

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to define the requirements for:

a) spatial requirements for newly installed escalators and moving walks

b) installation of new escalators and moving walks (inclusive of In-Truss)

c) refurbishment of existing escalators and moving walks

d) the provision and safe conditions of use for all escalators and moving walks.

The term escalator shall include moving walk unless otherwise stated.

Note: This standard does not include sufficient details to be used for the purpose of procuring escalators or moving walks. This standard shall comply with BS EN 115 unless stated otherwise.
