Innovative technology supplied by Sheffield company Zonegreen is helping to make a new, £150 million railway depot in Reading one of the safest in the UK.

The Darnall firm has installed its SMART Depot Personnel Protection System, pictured, to control train movements and protect depot staff. The technology will also help ensure the depot has enough capacity to service current diesel trains and the electric vehicles set to replace the Great Western Mainline fleet from 2017.

Zonegreen’s managing director, Tony Hague, said: “We worked closely with the team at Reading to integrate it into this highly complex development and everyone involved is pleased with how well it is performing.”
