Project: Refurbishment of Ealing Common Depot, UK
Client: McNealy Brown and TFL
Ealing Common Depot is a London Underground railway depot on the District line, located between Acton Town and Ealing Common stations in west London. It is the oldest of the main depots on the London Underground, having been built in 1905, when the District Railway was upgraded for electric traction.
McNealy Brown Limited is an approved supplier for many Main Contractors and Infrastructure Companies operating across the Construction and Rail Sectors and was appointed for the modernisation of the existing Ealing Common Depot. McNealy Brown chose Dura Composites for the supply of a wide range of innovative low-maintenance and safe GRP solutions which could help meet not only the maintenance and cleaning requirements of new trains, but also the operational requirement of increasingly frequent timetables.
Dura Composites’ innovative GRP product solutions at Ealing Common Depot included trench covers, structural stair treads, handrailing, walkway grating and profile sections. The characteristics of GRP makes it ideal for transforming existing depots into state-of-the-art facilities, with minimal disruption to the depot’s operational teams.
