    Blackburn New Diesel Maintenance Depot (Greig McMillan, Arcadis)

    The electrification programme in North West England which is currently underway has, somewhat paradoxically, generated a requirement for additional stabling facilities within the region where diesel multiple unit rolling stock can be concentrated. The presentation details the process by which a six-road servicing and light maintenance depot was constructed on the site of a former coal depot. This included the use of low vibration concrete slab track to reduce noise and vibration within the depot, and the provision of a new pre-cast concrete underbridge on the depot approach. It also involved the particular challenge of adapting the depot design to accommodate longer trains than originally specified, resulting in the specification of a more complex switch and crossing layout than planned to service the constrained layout
