Barhale were contracted, by the Olympic Delivery Authority, to undertake the £3.7 million scheme to install both temporary and permanent access structures to West Ham Station. This provided a pedestrian route for travel between West Ham Station and The Greenway, for access to the Olympic Park. The temporary structures were dismantled post-Olympic Games and stored for possible re-use in the future. The project was split into three phases:
Barhale installed a long temporary footbridge with two flights of stairs over the West Ham District Line. The walkway was positioned on 50No Screw Piles, embedded in the East Bound LU Embankment.
Construction of a temporary staircase with a 16 passenger disabled lift between Manor Road and the Greenway. Barhale reconstructed a 300m permanent step free DDA compliant access ramp from Manor Road, running parallel to the Greenway.
Barhale dismantled part of the temporary works once the Olympics finished, with potential for the steel walkway and staircase to be re-used in the future.
