London Underground Ltd escalator/travelator chambers, London

Following the Kings Cross fire disaster and the replacement of much combustible content, LUL wished to have an independent opinion on the appropriateness of its fire suppression system installed under escaltors. After making a survey of several stations I made calculations of fire load and made recommendations for revised sprinkler coverage for modern installations.
