WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has been offered a contract worth £1.9m to continue its support as a prime system integrator partner on London Underground’s New Tube for London programme.

Under the contract, the company will execute a framework to incorporate upgraded infrastructure, including new trains and signalling systems. This will further integrate with the new assets and the existing 153-year-old railway without hindering London’s busiest Tube services.

The London programme intends to introduce new signalling systems and around 250 new walk-through, air-cooled trains by the mid-2020s. These are planned to be implemented on the Piccadilly, Waterloo & City, Bakerloo, and Central lines to accommodate the growing London population.

The new systems are expected to foster faster and reliable passenger transportation with more frequency on all four deep-level lines.

"The London programme intends to introduce new signalling systems and around 250 new walk-through, air-cooled trains."

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff’s system integration associate consultant Paul Quintavalle said: "The New Tube for London will greatly improve the way many of us travel across our capital. It is exciting to remain at the heart of London Underground’s Programme team, a place we have earned through hard work and a close client relationship.

"The team has done exceptionally well and I am confident we will continue to support the New Tube engineering effort as we move forward."

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has been collaborating with London Underground for the last two-and-a-half years to assist in implementing this complex series of upgrades through a number of specialist services, including system integration management, requirements management, systems architectures, interface management, migration planning, and configuration management.
