With the introduction of IEP trains to the East Coast Main Line, an existing rolling stock maintenance depot required a variety of modifications to allow effective maintenance of the new IEP trains.

At Bounds Green maintenance depot, this involved the installation of a crane to enable the maintenance of roof-mounted modules. To facilitate full utilisation of the crane within the depot building, the Overhead Line Equipment (OLE) system had to be modified to allow safe passage along the length of the Depot.

As a result the OLE system needed to be retractable. To achieve this the OLE system along Road 11 was re-designed as a Furrer and Frey retractable overhead conductor beam system (ROCS).

The works were delivered in two key stages and had to be completed within the constraints of a four-road live operational maintenance shed for the duration. Along with the OLE scope Pod-Trak provided OTP to assist with the removal of concrete walkways, as well as the installation of an elevated walkway and access requirements for all M&E installations.
