Construction of Siemens’ new factory begins

Construction work began on July 6 at the site of Siemens Mobility’s Goole train factory, overseen by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

New Piccadilly Line Tube trains will be built at the £200 million development, as well as the possibility of new fleets for the Bakerloo, Central and Waterloo & City lines. Originally the four fleets were due to be part of one order, but that has now been split.

There is also the option to build main line suburban and inter-city trains at Goole.

Johnson said of the facility: “It’s going to be a European centre for excellence for rail technology right here in the East Riding of Yorkshire.”

    Siemens is of good repute. I believe they were involved in the construction of EUROTUNNEL.
