Stainless Steel - 100 Not Out!100 years of Stainless Steel

2013 marks 100 years since stainless steel was discovered in Sheffield. The BSSA have selected 50 applications and features that demonstrate how stainless steel has influenced our lives so far.



London Underground - Jubilee Line Extension

Entrance to Jubilee Line
Seats at Canada Water Doors at Bermondsey Station

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.

For further information, please see the Jubilee Line Extension case study.
