Tube works secured by Olympic fencers

London Underground tube works were secured by the largest suppliers of temporary high-security fencing systems to the London 2012 Olympics when it needed hoardings to protect a works site near St Paul’s Cathedral temporarily.

The temporary construction fencing for the Tube works was secured by MultiFence hoardings, at the junction of King Edward Street and Newgate Street in the City of London, have been supplied and fitted by Zaun to protect the workforce and equipment for two years while they refurbish a ventilation shaft to the Tube.

The ventilation shaft in the centre of the traffic island at the junction marks the location of the original lift shafts before the station was modernised in the 1930s with an underground ticket hall and escalators and moved to the east.

Zaun secured the 20 km boundary of the main Olympic Park, with a further 1.5km of Zaun fencing providing a ‘ring-within-a-ring’ around the Olympic Stadium.

They also delivered almost 5km of HVM fencing to secure temporary Olympics venues, including the beach volleyball at Horse Guards Parade, Wembley Stadium and Arena, Greenwich Park, the O2 Arena, the Royal Artillery Barracks, St James’s Park Newcastle, Coventry’s Ricoh Arena and the Weymouth sailing village.
