Burton-on-Trent TayWood on track for £19m rail project


TAYLOR Woodrow is preferred bidder on a £19 million rail depot scheme for Canadian carriage manufacturer Bombardier.

The firm has pipped Amec and Mowlem to the rail maintenance depot scheme in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire. Taywood is believed to be waiting for a letter of intent before demolition work can begin.

A start on site for the 11-month contract has been earmarked for before Christmas. The depot, located on the Derby to Birmingham line, will service Virgin Trains' new cross-country rail fleet.

Prologis Kingspark is developing the 25,000 sq m scheme, which will also includes offices, workshops, a train wash, track and feeder roads.
