To allow for longer trains they need to make a number of changes to the site, including:
- Extending the train maintenance shed by 20m north
- Extending the wheel lathe/heavy cleaning shed by 20m north
There will also be minor changes to reconfigure the bays used to maintain the trains and revise the interior layout of the shed to accommodate the larger trains.
Nearly all of these changes could be made within the existing depot site, but in order to extend the maintenance shed London Overground would need to move the existing retaining wall by 20m north (i.e. further towards Surrey Canal Road).
London Overground will be seeking planning permission from the London Borough of Lewisham and as part of the process would like to hear your views. You can either email your comments to email@example.com or submit them online at www.tfl.gov.uk/newcrossgate.
