When the future Elizabeth line trains go to sleep at night, one of their bedrooms will be a large new depot being built at Old Oak Common, and next year there is a chance to have a look at the site.
The trains will be maintained at the depot, which will be built by Bombardier Transportation’s subcontractor Taylor Woodrow, the civil engineering division of VINCI Construction UK.
Also the concept design for the Old Oak Common Depot requires a hybrid renewables energy scheme comprising of multiple energy sources.
The site tour is part of the Open Doors event, a sort of building-site equivalent of London Open House weekend and which is slowly starting to announce venues for next March.
On the tour, you will have the opportunity to meet the team constructing one of Crossrail’s key schemes.
Places are free, but going fast — book here.
