Greater Anglia’s New Manningtree Depot – 26th August 2017

Work has started on clearing the site for Greater Anglia’s new Manningtree Depot.

There’s still a fair part of the old industrial buildings left, so it is unclear how much of the whole site the deport will occupy.

This visualisation is from Greater Anglia’s web site.

And this Google Map shows the site.

Note the access road and the conveniently placed Norwich to London express train on both images.

There are other visual clues that suggest to me that although taking a substantial part of the derelict, there will be space around the depot for substantial development.

The train is about 220 metres long, with the building in the new depot being described as 300 metres long.
