Taylor Woodrow wins £142m contract for London Crossrail depot at Old Oak Common

Taylor Woodrow, part of the Vinci group, has bagged a £142m contract to build a new depot for Crossrail at Old Oak Common in west London

When complete, the depot will accommodate up to 33 trains while routine maintenance is carried out.

Taylor Woodrow has been awarded the design-and-build contract for Bombardier Transport UK.

Project manager James Mendis said: “The award of this important contract is the latest stage of Taylor Woodrow’s extensive involvement with Crossrail.

“Our role at Old Oak Common will allow us to demonstrate our extensive capabilities in delivering railway infrastructure projects.”

As well as a hybrid renewables energy system (HRES) comprising photovoltaic cells and solar-heated water, the new building will include a combined heat and power (CHP) plant and ground-source heat pumps.

The facility will be crucial to Bombardier’s £1bn contract with Transport for London for the supply, delivery and maintenance of 65 new 200m-long trains for the Crossrail fleet.

The new trains will be manufactured at its Derby plant, with the first due date to be delivered in May 2017.
