Ealing Common

Ealing Common Depot works comprised the preparation and coating of new and existing underground train maintenance roads. The works were undertaken directly with London Underground/ TfL.

SMS are contracted to blast and coat all the existing roads, pits and walkways along with three new ones ready for the depot commissioning. The works require both a flexible and innovative approach as the company is working alongside other contractors in what is still an operational depot.

Sequencing is crucial, as the timing of the preparation and coating must be in line with the coating manufacturers specifications in order to maximize its lifespan.
