Jack Lopresti MP visits Hitachi site in Stoke Gifford

Jack Lopresti MP joined Keith Jordan, Managing Director at Hitachi Rail Europe with his senior site staff and local Councillors to see the progress on construction of the company's new Train Maintenance Centre in Stoke Gifford. The superstructure of the main maintenance building which started in August 2013 is nearing completion and the £80 million facility should be finished by the end of 2015.

 

Once completed, the modern depot will comprise a maintenance building with two full-length internal roads, office and staff accommodation space, stabling and servicing roads, and a carriage wash plant. The facility will serve as one of Hitachi Rail Europe's maintenance facilities for the new Great Western Main Line rolling stock it is building as part of the Government's £5.8bn Intercity Express Programme.

 

Jack Lopresti MP said, 'It was very interesting to see the progress made so far in the construction of this state of the art facility. I am pleased that Hitachi has today reconfirmed to me their commitment to filling as many jobs as possible from the local work force, including apprentices. They are very keen to develop strong links with local educational establishments, engaging young people with the fantastic opportunities offered by a career in engineering."

EU: Justice and Home Affairs (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (22 Jul 2014)
Lord Taylor of Holbeach: My Lords, I join in expressing gratitude to all noble Lords who have participated in this debate; fewer, perhaps, than might be considered enough to do justice to a very thorough report and a serious matter, but of course, it is soon after we discussed matters last Thursday evening. I am delighted to see the noble Lord, Lord Boswell of Aynho, in his place. I thank him and, through him, all...
