Redundant Lead Cable Removal

DPSS have been tasked with removing redundant Lead Cables from London Undergrounds Northern Line tunnel Network that were installed during WW2 to safeguard National important defence communications.

With no available archive of what has been previously recovered DPSS are working between Waterloo and South Wimbledon Stations including Station inverts.

Removal of these 3 cables will hand back premium tunnel and invert cable route capacity to London Underground for future works.

Additionally all cable is being recycled at designated recycling centres in London and removes any environmental threat to staff, passengers and contractors commuting or working in these areas.

Currently DPSS have removed 150 Tonnes of cable creating 10Km of spare cable route capacity for London Underground.

Earls Court THID

DPSS were awarded a contract for the design, construct and installation of a Ticket Hall Information Display Unit (THID) at Earls Court Station.

The THID needed to be mounted on Platform 3/4 and at a high level to allow Passengers to view it from along the platform and the passenger walkway.

DPSS  designed the Stainless Steel Post and had it manufactured by a small Engineering company based in Kent.

DPSS then installed the post and mounted the THID at Earls Court.

DPSS were working to very tight deadlines and were pleased to deliver the solution on time and in budget with much praise from the client.

DPSS have worked on many THIDs and VEIDs across the LUL Network.
