Monument Pedestrian Subways: North Barrel opens


RHINOCEROS is pleased to annouce the opening of the North Barrel of the Monument Pedestrian Subway, outside House of Fraser.  This is the first phase of the project to reach completion, and includes stairs to street level.  Old tiles, originally made in 1935, were badly cracked and stained and underlying brickwork and concrete was badly damaged in places.  The faience tiles in stone colour and contrasting detail stripes were commissioned from the same original manufacturers and required expert work since long horizontal stretches had to be matched with a complex underground topography.  The refurbishment includes a complete refurbishment of parapets and plinths at street level.  The first stage of the concrete has been completed to schedule whilst maintaining full pedestrian access through the busy subway system with access to Monument Tube.
