London Bridge railway station, built in the1830s, is one of the oldest stations in the world. It is located south-east of London Bridge on the River Thames, near Tooley Street in London, and is one of London’s most prestigious landmarks undergoing major development.

The station currently handles up to 42 million passengers in a single year. It is expected to handle a passenger capacity of between 50 and 75 million people a year after the completion of the station redevelopment project.

Construction on the redevelopment project began in 2013 and will be completed in 2018.

It was anticipated by the client and main contractors that cleaning regimes would serve to remove the jointing sand leading to de-stabilisation of the paving and causing hazards such as tripping accidents. In addition a product which would impart a degree of stain resistance was required.

The Benefits:
