The Three Bridges depot is split into east and west-side facilities either side of the London to Brighton mainline. Works here will include a five-road, 12-car maintenance building with associated stores, workshops and offices, train stabling and servicing roads. Two carriage washing machines, CET system, wheel lathe and all associated depot infrastructure will also be installed. Two under bridges will be widened as part of the work.

The depot at Hornsey in north London is being constructed within a live operational rail environment next to the East Coast mainline. The project involves the coordinated redevelopment of two separate areas of existing infrastructure, including the existing operational depot and derelict sidings. The work includes building a new three-road, 12-car maintenance shed, two carriage washing machines, offices, CET and all associated depot infrastructure. Two bridges over the New River and Turnpike Lane are also being widened.

Our sister company, VolkerRail, will deliver the permanent way, overhead electrification and signaling works.
