Marylebone Station, London, UK

Marylebone station opened in 1899 and was the last of London’s main line termini to be built. The station connects the capital to a number of other cities including Nottingham, Sheffield and Manchester.

Due to the voice alarm system being installed in the station, a large amount of the work took place out of hours so as to minimise disruption to the public.

The Project

Three fire microphones, a paging microphone and the new touchscreen microphone were all installed for broadcasts and messages to play throughout the station. Train platforms, concourses and entrances are the zones all served by the system.

Steve Piercy, Operations and Project Manager at Aktrion Facilities Services said, “Having such vast experience of safety critical PAVA equipment within the transport industry, it seemed like the obvious choice to approach Baldwin Boxall for the new zonal PAVA system, along with wireless microphone functionality at our client’s flagship station.

Baldwin Boxall assisted with every stage from initial concept and design to final sign off by our client. Of course, like any project of this size and complexity there were 'hiccups' but Baldwin Boxall always ensured these were resolved with the least detriment to the project timeline and for that, I am grateful.

Mr Piercy continues “Marylebone Station now benefits from having Dispatchers on platforms with radio microphones which has assisted them to implement dual boarding processes at the station, along with the broadcasting of safety announcements in response to real time events/issues being witnessed by platform staff.”

The use of ambient noise sensing facilities ensures that messages or announcements made late at night are as unobtrusive as possible, particularly with local residents in mind.

A special black finish wall mounted fire microphone was also installed at the station. We endeavour to accommodate our customers’ needs with requests for special finishes and make adjustments or changes where possible.

We very much look forward to working with Baldwin Boxall again and would have every confidence in their ability to fulfil our requirements in full on any future projects of this nature.
