Kenwood NEXEDGE® System at London Bridge Station

Already one of the busiest rail transport hubs in the UK, London Bridge Station is preparing itself for a 10% increase in passengers by 2018.
London Bridge mainline railway station is one of the oldest in the UK and has been the subject of numerous rebuilding and improvement programmes in its 178 year history. The current development of the station will result in a concourse covering 10,500m2 in anticipation of managing the 55 million passengers likely to be transiting through it when completed in 2018.

As part of the £6.5 billion London Thameslink project which will increase rail capacity, frequency and connections running north to south through the centre of London, the station is undergoing a major redevelopment programme which started in 2013 and is scheduled for completion in 2018.

The project will effectively flatten the existing building to its Victorian foundations to create a new station with a concourse larger than the pitch at Wembley Stadium which will sit under the tracks and sixteen extended platforms – not a simple feat in such a busy part of a capital city and made even more challenging as the station will be kept open throughout the process.

The development is now in full swing with an ‘army’ of contractors are operating in and around the station 24 hours a day.


Keeping 300,000 passengers from 2,500 trains each day safe and informed.

The Network Rail team managing safety, security and delivering operational efficiency at London Bridge Station is led by Station Manager Denis Kirk who is supported by five Station Shift Managers operating in three shifts six days a week. The station is only closed for three hours each day between 1am and 4am for cleaning, maintenance and repairs.

The station team took delivery of their new Kenwood NEXEDGE® digital radio communications system during 2013, ahead of major station redevelopment works commencing. The design of the Distributed Antenna System (DAS) to deliver 100% coverage throughout the station, both above and below the ground, was carried out by Affini Technology Ltd who, as an approved Kenwood partner, also installed, programmed and commissioned the NEXEDGE® digital radio system comprising repeaters and hand portable radios.

The NEXEDGE® digital conventional system installed at the station comprises one base station, two repeaters and 120 hand-portable radios – and is programmed to operate in both digital and analogue modes.

“All of the Network Rail and train operating companies staff based at the station are equipped with radios, so too are the British Transport Police officers who can monitor our channels to keep informed on situations. The radios are our primary communications tool and I can say without fear of contradiction that all staff feel much safer because the new NEXEDGE® system provides 100% coverage of the station, something the previous analogue system just wasn’t able to do”.
