The last great public project in London of the 20th century; the Jubilee Line Extension was completed just in time for the millennium at a cost of £3.2 billion. The 16km extension was the result of half a century of strategic transport planning where stainless steel can be seen to play a vital role.
Across all the 11 new or rebuilt stations stainless steel was used extensively for a variety of applications from seating, escalators and balustrading to roofing, cladding and ticket dispensers. The main reasons for using stainless steel in this project is that it is easy to maintain, durable and will last decades to come for the thousands of people passing through the Underground each day.
