Transport for Buckinghamshire unveiled their new Amersham depot last week.

TfB's new depot on London Road will provide a central location for workers to provide winter maintenance, road repairs, grass cutting, gully emptying, minor works and emergencies.

Previously, the depot was comprised of a selection of portacabins which had not been upgraded or refurbished for a number of years. TfB said that depot staff 'had to endure sub-zero temperatures temperatures in the winter and overheated rooms in the summer'.

It took a number of years for Transport for Bucks, working alongside highway service provider Ringway Jacobs, to gain approval for the new building from the Environment Agency.

Once planning permission was granted for the new depot, new buildings were ordered in March in order to begin work to fill out the new site.

During May the area was cordoned off and the work to transform the area started, with the modular buildings taking just one week to be placed on the ground.

Mark Shaw, Cabinet Member for Transportation and Deputy Leader of the Council said, "The TfB team that have worked so hard and so stoically out of the existing depot for the past 10 years. We are really pleased that we now offer them a much improved place to work. It was my pleasure to officially open the new depot."
