Polypipe manufactured, delivered and oversaw the installation of a surface water attenuation system for the London Bridge railway station, as part of the Thameslink redevelopment programme.

Located beneath the station’s car parking facility, the attenuation system comprises a 1500mm diameter Ridgistorm-XL tank, Ridgistorm-XL pipes and fittings, and a RIDGISTORMCheck vortex flow controller within a 1500mm chamber.

The tank is capable of storing 68m3 of water, while the vortex flow controller releases the water at a rate of no more than 70 litres/s.

Polypipe’s in-house manufacturing facility produced a modularised design that included pipes in bespoke lengths, all of which could be delivered to site for a safe and timely installation.

Polypipe ensured that retrofitting and any design alterations required in situ were undertaken to meet tight timescales.
