The signalling upgrade works will be re-tendered in accordance with procurement rules as a consequence of the successful transfer of Metronet from administration, Metronet said.
Bombardier will continue to deliver new trains on the SSL and Westinghouse will continue to improve the existing signalling system to enable those trains to operate on those lines. On the BCV programme (Bakerloo, Central and Victoria Lines) programme, the upgrade of the Victoria line with new trans from Bombardier and a new Westinghouse signalling system will continue.
London Underground managing director Tim O’Toole said: "I look forward to the successful commissioning of Westinghouse’s new signalling system on the Victoria Line and to the completion of its work on the existing signalling system on SSL and hope Westinghouse will participate in the re-tender of the signalling system for SSL."
James Drummond, chief executive and president of Invensys Rail Group, which owns Westinghouse, said: "We continue to support LUL through this difficult time. In the longer term, as Metronet emerges from administration, we will continue to work with LUL and Metronet and utilise our signalling technologies to deliver the increase in safety, performance and capacity of the Tube network that London needs."
