Lifting jacks key to refurb
30 March 2023
West Midlands Trains’ Bletchley depot in Milton Keynes is taking delivery of 21 Mechan lifting jacks, as part of a major refurbishment project due to complete in 2024.
THE 18-tonne flagship jacks will work as a set of 20 (with one spare) to lift five-car class 730 Aventra trains, which are being built by Alstom (formerly Bombardier) in Derby. The installation is part of extensive civil changes being made to Bletchley’s road four to accommodate the jacking requirements of the new vehicles.
