New depot secured for Abellio London Bus

ALB, which operates 740 buses on 52 routes – nine per cent of the buses in the capital for Transport for London (TfL) – has to relocate as its current depot in North Hyde Gardens, Hayes is to be redeveloped. Property Consultancy Vail Williams sourced the new site – just two miles from the existing depot – and then helped secure sui generis planning permission for expanding ALB, never an easy task when applied to bus depots.
