Taylor Woodrow to upgrade District Line train depots
Taylor Woodrow has been awarded a £44.3m contract by London Underground to carry out the design and construction of upgrade works to its train depots at Ealing Common and Upminster.
The two depots are being upgraded so that they can service the new S7 train fleet. Work includes extensions to existing depot buildings, swimming pool inspection pits, and extensive modifications to signalling and mechanical & electrical services. Existing depot operations will continue during the construction work.
Taylor Woodrow managing director Graham Stanley commented: “This is a fantastic contract win for Taylor Woodrow. It is a real honour to work on such a high profile project that will help deliver a better service and ultimately help keep London moving. Throughout the project we will be working in partnership with London Underground to ensure that all works are completed to the highest standard and disruption is kept to a minimum."
