Bombardier Transportation awarded a major contract extension by Transport for London (TfL) to service trains operating on the London Overground network. The contract extension is a variation to an existing Train Services Agreement, which extends the current contract end from December 2023 to May 2030 for maintenance and support services for the Bombardier Electrostar Class 378 fleet in operation on the London Overground network.

This contract, originally signed in 2006 will now continue until 2030, removing a previous contract break in 2023. This contract change is valued at approximately $149 million.

"This contract change demonstrates TfL's continued confidence in Bombardier's delivery of high quality fleet maintenance services,” said Richard Hunter, UK managing director for Bombardier Transportation. “We were able to show improved value for money, and through collaborative work with the customer, reduced service locations and extended maintenance intervals."

Under the Train Services Agreement, maintenance will take place at four separate locations in and around London, including New Cross Gate depot in south east London and Willesden Train Care Depot in north London.
