Go-Ahead-owned Thames Travel has opened a new low-carbon depot in Didcot, replacing its previous base in Wallingford.

Part of a £2.5m investment, the depot has a fully-equipped workshop, fuelling and washing facilities, and new office space.

It has energy-efficient lighting and will soon get solar panels.

The move from Wallingford is part of the operator’s strategy to boost the economic growth of Didcot.

Thames Travel Managing Director, Phil Southall, says: “Didcot is an exciting growth area in the county, and we are committed to ensuring we continue to play a key role in its success.

“We are proud to be a large and growing employer in the area, and to pay our colleagues above the Oxford Living Wage.

“Our depot move was an important strategic decision to ensure we are well placed to cater for the growth we are seeing both in Didcot itself, and across the surrounding employment hubs at Milton Park and Harwell Campus."
