UK: Northern Unveils Neville Hill Depot Transformation

Northern has revealed before and after images of its 350,000 GBP transformation project at the Neville Hill depot in Leeds.

Over a period of 14 weeks, its team has converted an old laundry room into a new production office, installed a new communication and briefing area fitted with interactive screens, and upgraded the site’s lighting.

This facility is used to service 34 trains from nine different fleets. Each day, a team of engineers and support staff carries out more than 500 safety and service critical tasks on these vehicles. This work supports 260 direct and 825 indirect daily passenger services.

Northern became the sole operator of the depot in 2021 and has since completed a site-wide clean-up, enabled more efficient working, improved security, refurbished facilities, and improved safety by installing illuminated walkways.

Andrew Marden, TrainCare Centre manager at Neville Hill, said:

“I’d like to thank everyone involved in this project, the end result is absolutely fantastic. These changes will mean we can carry on our work to provide the best possible service for our customers.

“A successful Neville Hill benefits not only our customers, but the local community too. While customers will benefit from better maintained and more reliable trains; the local community will have access to employment opportunities supported by training and apprenticeships.”
