We secured planning consent for four state-of the-art maintenance depots, to service a fleet of high-speed trains.

The depots -  in Swansea, North Pole (London), Stoke Gifford (Bristol) and Doncaster -  are to service 110 new, Japanese-manufactured, express trains, replacing old rolling stock on the East Coast and Great Western main lines.

We advised the government-tasked consortium operating the trains on the consents and infrastructure needed for the new and refurbished depots.

The fleet is to be rolled out from 2017.
