Mr.Lambert reported that the estimated cost for the erection of a new building could not be reduced below the figure of £100,000, as the total estimated cost including work by the Signal Engineer and Chief Mechanical & Electrical Engineer and in addition approximately £15,000 for fuelling facilities at New Basford Sidings, would be of the order of £140,000. It was agreed that Mr.Lambert proceed with preparation of an estimate for a new building, and Mr.Gould will look specially into the preparation of schemes for the introduction of diesel services in the Derby, Nottingham and Leicester areas, to enable a submission to be made quickly.
First part of scheme introduced on June 9th, 1958. Remainder of scheme will be brought into operation on June 15th, 1959.
