Overview

The Beckton DLR Depot improvement works aim to provide additional facilities as part of larger programme that will see 54 new, state-of-the-art trains start to enter service from 2024. 

Expansion of the depot will see a new maintenance building, including a new train-lifting road, craneage, under train access and pits to enable the final assembly of the new B23 trains and longer-term maintenance facilities as more of the new fleet is introduced. A new test track facility will also be constructed to allow testing of the new Thales signalling system that will be introduced for both the new B23 trains and the existing B2007 fleet that is being retained.

Representatives from Morgan Sindall Infrastructure will be hosting the visit, giving a tour of the site and answering any questions you may have.

Please arrive on time to get started at 10:00, the meeting point will be the site reception, what three words: ///dined.escape.waddled.
