Emeg® Group is pleased to announce that we were recently appointed by Buckingham Group Contracting to undertake a comprehensive schedule of improvement work at the Etches Park rail depot in Derby for East Midlands Railway.

This vital upgrade work is necessary ahead of the arrival of the new Aurora train fleet in 2023 and will provide improvements in operational flexibility allowing greater train movements through the depot.

Our expert team of rail engineers and designers are very familiar with Etches Park, having designed and installed a new refuelling system at the depot back in 2013. This new contract is worth in excess of £5.5m and will involve a 35-week programme due for completion by November 2022.

The full schedule of works includes:
