Addleshaw Goddard has advised a joint venture between Keolis and Amey on the contract to operate and maintain Greater Manchester’s Metrolink – the UK’s largest light rail network with 37 million passengers using it each year.
The JV partners were awarded the contract, which will run for up to 10 years, following a competitive procurement run by Transport for Greater Manchester.
The contract award comes at a key time for the Metrolink, as the second city crossing is completed and construction has commenced on the Trafford Park Line extension, with completion expected in 2020/2021.
The AG team was led by Head of Transport Paul Hirst (picture) alongside Phil Dupres, Helen Bailey and Moh Rafi in the Infrastructure, Projects & Energy team.
