London Underground has submitted proposals to the Health and Safety Executive for improving the safety of glass at stations on the Jubilee Line Extension.

The proposals come after Building revealed that HSE officials had demanded action over toughened glass panels at all 11 JLE stations.

Stan Hart, a principal at the HSE’s Inspectorate of Railways, said: “We have met with London Underground and it is fully compliant with my requests to improve safety.”

A spokesperson for London Underground said: “At Stratford, to be ultra-safe, we are considering putting in a permanent form of wire netting where toughened glass was shattered, because passengers walk underneath. Until the toughened glass is replaced, the scaffolding that was put in place after the incident will stay in place.”

She added: “At Canary Wharf, an external impact had shattered the external layer of glass leaving the internal layer intact. Netting will be kept in place until the laminated glass is replaced.”
