Jubilee Line depot JLP01_11_61523_02
Stratford Market Depot, Stratford, Newham, Greater London. One of the new Jubilee Line underground tube trains (96003), standing on the tracks of one of the eleven maintenance bays inside the main shed at Stratford Market Depot.
Construction on the Stratford Market Depot was carried out by Laing London, with work starting on the 35 acre site in November 1993. The train depot, designed by architects Wilkinson Eyre, was built as part of the Jubilee Line Extension running from Green Park to Stratford and was where trains would be maintained and serviced. The shed which is a skewed parallelogram shaped structure, measuring 100m x 190m, had the space capacity to accommodate almost half the fleet, including 59 new six-car trains, with the first of the new trains arriving at the shed on 11th December 1996
