Transport for London (TFL) has re-awarded contracts to Lanes Group to maintain structure and drainage assets associated with the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly [JNP] Underground lines.
The awards, made under Lot 3 of TfL's asset maintenance procurement process, mean Lanes Group has retained all contracts it currently holds.
Under TfL's new procurement regime, designed to streamline its maintenance supply chain, it also means Lanes Group can now bid for more work across all transport infrastructure.
Matthew Todd, commercial director of Lanes Rail division, said: "This gives our teams work for the next five years, with an option for TfL to extend the contract for another three. We also hope it will result in us significantly increasing the volume of work we do for TfL over the duration of the contract."
He added: "Our approach is always to combine a very strong health and safety regime with a can-do approach to solving the most challenging maintenance problems on London Underground."
The contracts will be managed by Tube Lines, a subsidiary of TfL, which is responsible for the maintenance of the JNP lines.
Lot 3 is split into three options. Lanes Rail will now share the work available in Option 1, civils and structures maintenance, and Option 2, drainage maintenance, with three other contractors on a framework.
Option 3, reactive civils and structures maintenance, has been re-awarded to Lanes Group as a sole supplier. All options are due to start operating from April.
