Golden Jubilee

  • Comment

The full splendour of the Jubilee Line becomes more apparent each week, with stations opening well in advance of the Millennium. They look both robust and sparkling at the same time, which must please the conductor of the architectural orchestra which has produced the stations, Roland Paoletti. It is a little known fact that the contracts undertaken by the architects were in fact to do fit-outs of stations already designed; once the project was in place, the full scope of the architectural undertaking became apparent. Astragal has a fact which may intrigue Roland: the cost of keeping the Foster Canary Wharf station spick and span for just the last three months was the best part of £1 million!
