Transport for London (TfL) has awarded a contract extension to Bombardier Transportation to service trains operating on the London Overground network.

The agreement extends the current contract, which was originally signed in 2006, from December 2023 to May 2030.

Under the contract, Bombardier will continue to maintain and provide support services for the Bombardier Electrostar Class 378 fleet operating on the network.

Bombardier noted that the contract change is valued at about £106m.

Bombardier Transportation UK managing director Richard Hunter said: “This contract change demonstrates TfL’s continued confidence in Bombardier’s delivery of high quality fleet maintenance services.

“We were able to show improved value for money, and through collaborative work with the customer, reduced service locations and extended maintenance intervals.”
