Morgan Sindall wins £88m Beckton DLR

Morgan Sindall has secured the job to build a major new train maintenance depot for the Docklands Light Railway in East London with an £88m bid.


The project to advance the major works programme at Beckton was delayed by the impact of Covid during the previous procurement phase when works were being packaged up.


Now the programme is being tackled as a major contract with Morgan Sindall starting shortly.


The rejigged project includes a new maintenance facility building including four sidings, superstructure and fit out of a new shed, and installation of a test track.


The scope also now includes deferred southern sidings works and the detailed design and build of the temporary fit out shed.


Maintenance and stabling facilities are being extended to handle a new fleet of DLR trains.
