The Secretary of State for Transport owns the former Eurostar depot at North Pole, which is managed by LCR.
North Pole depot was the London depot for Eurostar from 1994 until 2007. The depot site is adjacent to the Great Western Main Line between Ealing Broadway and London Paddington, on both sides of the West London Line, with which it has a connection. The depot became redundant in November 2007 when the London terminus of Eurostar services moved from Waterloo International Station to St Pancras International Station and maintenance moved to a new site at Temple Mills, near Stratford International.
The Company is directed by the Department for Transport (DfT) to keep the facility safe and secure and to co-operate with proposals for the future use and development. The bulk of the depot is to be used by Agility Trains in connection with the Intercity Express Programme (IEP) to procure new trains to replace the Intercity 125 fleet on the East Coast Main Line and Great Western Main Line, as well as replacing other trainsets on long distance services from London. LCR is examining residential and commercial uses for the remainder of the site as well as exploring interim use opportunities.
