Caunton are to supply the structural steelwork for the new Train Maintenance Depot at New Cross for the Balfour Beatty-Carillion consortium.
The depot is a component of a massive £363m main works contract awarded by Transport for London, TfL, to the consortium. As a result a new railway for East London moves a step closer. This major investment is one of the cornerstones of TfL's £10bn Investment Programme and will deliver a key Olympic transport commitment - the construction of a new railway line between West Croydon, Crystal Palace and Dalston Junction, incorporating the existing East London Line.
Caunton have excellent experience in constructing Traincare depots and working with this Carillion team in particular, for we supplied steelwork for the Northampton Traincare Depot which was then constructed by Mowlem, now Carillion of course, and engineered by Tony Gee and Partners.
Caunton are delighted to be sharing in the task of ensuring the spectators travel to the London Olympics both on time and in comfort.
