TfL have been assessing how to take forward the development of Lillie Bridge Depot and have undertaken a feasibility study on which it is now engaging with the Unions. The study broadly concludes that essential work undertaken at Lillie Bridge Depot can be done at other existing Tube maintenance facilities.

The study is available here:

The next stage of the process is to assess how these activities could be relocated in line with operational requirements. This is likely to be phased over a number of years and will be done in consultation with staff and unions.

Any future proposals for the site will have to be deliverable, financially viable and in line with the phasing approved within the approved Earls Court Masterplan.
