Refurbishment work at London’s Liverpool Street Station has started with the installation of 3,500 low-energy LED lights to cut the power consumption.
The station – which is Britain’s second busiest with 66 million passengers annually – now has LED lighting on the concourse and on all of its 18 platforms and other public areas.
The task to replace all the lights started in 2017 and it is estimated over 800,000 kWh will be saved each year.
Adam Thackeray, Network Rail’s works delivery manager at London Liverpool Street station, commented: “Network Rail is fully committed to reducing its carbon footprint.
“We decided to move to LED lighting at London Liverpool Street as its better for the environment, it saves energy, is cheaper and it improves the experience for passengers.”
