East Yorkshire factory wins £1.5bn Tube train deal
An East Yorkshire factory has won a £1.5bn contract to build new Tube trains for London Underground. The new trains are expected to start running on the Piccadilly Line from 2023. The Siemens contract is the first step in upgrading London Underground's four deep Tube lines, with improvements to the Bakerloo, Central, and Waterloo and City lines to follow. TfL said it expected "a single manufacturer building the trains for all four Deep Tube lines". Work has yet to start on the new train factory, which is planned for a 67-acre site close to the M62. When it opens it will employ 700 people.
