Our Ref:         FOI-2635-1819

Thank you for your request received on 8 January 2019 asking for information about Crossrail’s light fixture design.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm we hold some of the information you require. You asked for:

Please find attached the:

• Base C100 employers design technical specification clause for the escalator light

• Base C100 escalator tunnel lighting study
• The final contractors suppliers escalator luminaire product technical information sheet
• The final contractors suppliers calculated escalator light distribution

Design meetings were not recorded by minutes, therefore we do not hold this information.

Please note that in accordance with TfL’s obligations under Data Protection legislation some information has been withheld from the attached correspondence, as required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the legislation, specifically the first principle of Article 5 of the General Data Protection Regulation which requires all processing of personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions which would make the processing ‘fair’.

This exemption to the right of access to information is an absolute exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest favours use of the exemption.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.
