Bombardier Transportation has confirmed that in December 2019 it has agreed with Transport for London (TfL) to prolong the breakpoint in the existing contract to service trains operating on the London Overground network by ten years.
Under the EUR 216 million contract, Bombardier will be responsible for maintenance and support services for the 54-train Aventra Class 710 fleet from July 2025 to July 2035.
Under the train services agreement, maintenance of the Aventra EMU fleet will continue to take place at Bombardier’s Willesden train depot in North London. The fleet is now in daily service on the Gospel Oak-Barking and Watford-London Euston London Overground routes. The trains will soon be in service on the West Anglia Metro routes.
“Transport for London is one of our most important customers and we look forward to Bombardier continuing to deliver reliable Aventra trains for Londoners,” said Matt Byrne, the president of Bombardier Transportation UK.
