7372R LX12YJO

Details: By my best reckoning, there are about 80 service vehicles allocated to Stratford Market Depot, of which 40 are Renault Kangoos. However, there are currently only two 'regular' vans there, the remainder being Maxi or Compact van variants or estate cars. One of the pair is 7372R, seen emerging from Cam Road on 4th July 2013. This is the only road access to the depot and, due to the central reservation, both arriving and departing vehicles have to do so going west.

Thomas YoungA couple of points to clarify about this location. This is still the main access to and from the depot but there is now a connection between Cam Road and Kerrison Road about 20 metres from the junction with High Street, meaning that vehicles can bypass the latter point. There is also a second road entrance at the south end of the depot on Abbey Road, although this appears to be for emergency use only. Visiting here during the day time is not usually very productive, and the only decent view into the depot is reserved for occupants of the newish offices and flats. However, as with some other depots, a night time visit can be interesting. I recently spent 2 hours standing at the junction shown above and noted about 60 vehicles, the busiest time being between midnight and 1am. 6 vehicles passed from elsewhere on High Street, while 56 came out of the depot itself. These included a few from the related allocations at North Crescent and Westferry Circus and also several of the facilities vans which used to be based at Acton Works. Finally please be aware that hanging around here at night is not something I would recommend that you do on your own!Fri 16/08/2013, 18:25
