Battersea Railway Bridge is one of the earliest railway bridges crossing the Thames surviving in its original form, and after 150 years its being given a new lease of life! First opening in 1863, Battersea Railway Bridge is an important transport link across the River Thames, linking Battersea with Chelsea on the West London Line. In April 2013 the work began, repairing and strengthening the structure to be completed in spring 2014.

Network Rail recently converted a section of the railway arches into business units by building a front and rear wall with doors and shutters for access.

While this work was being carried out, Western Industrial were approached by an international luxury car supplier, to utilise the limited headroom of the arch to create raised offices, leaving a clear area beneath for a bright and appealing area to showcase their cars.


“Having worked with Western Industrial previously, I asked them to design and build all the internal elements for our luxury car showrooms in Battersea, London. As I expected, they completed the job on time and within budget. I would highly recommend their services.”
