Bigger depot proposal to create 50 rail engineer jobs
THE company which maintains the UK rail network has resubmitted plans for a larger logistics and maintenance depot in Derby, which would create 50 engineering jobs.
Network Rail wants to develop a larger building at the depot, on a 70-acre site near to Chaddesden Triangle.
The company has now submitted a new planning application to Derby City Council for a three-storey building, instead of a two-storey structure. It will bring together around 450 staff from existing Network Rail offices and sub-depots across the region.
But it will also be home to 50 engineers who will be involved in the £500 million upgrade and electrification of the Midland Main Line, which serves Derby.

Martin Frobisher, Network Rail's East Midlands route managing director, said: "The Government's proposal that it plans to fund the electrification of our main line is fantastic news.
"It means we will need to recruit electrification maintenance teams who will join the team at Derby."
