Vinci has taken over Carillion’s London Overground facilities management contract.
The £7.5M job includes maintenance work and fault rectification at 81 London stations as well as planning trackside delivery works.
As part of the 12-month deal, Vinci has taken on 119 former Carillion employees.
Vinci Facilities managing director Tony Raikes said: “One of the most rewarding things about this contract with Arriva Rail London is our teams’ ability to help the client and step in to maintain FM services after the demise of Carillion.
“It is an exciting project, our first on the Overground network, building on our successes with TfL. We’re looking forward to taking the project beyond the initial 12-months.”
