Carillion started construction of the new Metroline bus depot on 4th April at the Linear Land site off the recently named Freight Lane. The construction phase involved high level re-grading of the site, including the formation of the both entrance and exit ramps and installation of all the below ground services, ducting and drainage. The excavated materials from the re-grading and trenching have been transported to the main part of the King’s Cross Central site to be recycled for re-use in the SEFI works. The surface of the bus depot has now received an asphalt finish.
Over the next four weeks Metroline will work on the fit-out of the depot which will involve the installation of modular office accommodation and external ancillary equipment such as a bus-wash, a fuel tank and perimeter lighting. Metroline hope to take occupation of the site in early July.
