UK: Transport for London has reappointed WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff as prime system integrator support partner on for the New Tube for London programme under a contract worth £1·9m.

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has been working with London Underground for 2½ years on systems integration services for the programme to modernise rolling stock, infrastructure and signalling on the Piccadilly, Waterloo & City, Bakerloo and Central lines.

The project includes the purchase of 250 new trainsets. In January Alstom, Bombardier, CAF, Hitachi and Siemens were invited to tender, and TfL expects to award the contract in late 2017.
