50 new electrification maintenance specialist roles are to be created in Derby, if plans for a maintenance centre of excellence get the go-ahead.

Plans have been re-submitted now they have been updated.

Network Rail want to build the centre to accomodate the team that they say is required to support the electrification of the Midland Main Line.

400 maintenance staff from existing offices and sub-depots across the East Midlands will also be put into the centre.
