Interserve has won a seven-year contract to provide cleaning and security services for the Docklands Light Railway (DLR).
Under the £32 million contract with Keolis Amey Docklands, Interserve will provide specialist cleaning and security services across seven routes and 45 depots used by 278,000 passengers daily.
More than 130 people have transferred to Interserve through TUPE to manage the 24/7 service operations covering station and fleet cleaning, vegetation control, winterisation, depot security, events stewarding, security revenue protection and barrier control.
Interserve's other transport servicing work includes the underground, overground and high-speed rail networks in the UK and Spain, as well as supporting and maintaining rail infrastructure, depots, stations and offices for various transport authorities.
Keolis Amey Docklands is a joint venture between Keolis and Amey formed last year to operate and maintain the DLR until April 2021.
