Womble Bond Dickinson has advised Transdev Dublin Light Rail on its successful bid for a new contract to operate and maintain the Luas light rail system in Dublin for the next six years.
Transport Infrastructure Ireland and the National Transport Authority awarded TDLR the new Operations and Maintenance contract, which includes an option to extend for a further five years, following a detailed tender process. The new contract will commence on 1 December 2019 and will see TDLR operate and maintain the Luas light rail system (which now comprises 43 kilometres of track and which carried over 42 million passenger journeys in 2018).
Transdev is active in all aspects of public transport provision from the organisation and management of major projects to the development of passenger services and the operation of networks.
The WBD team was led by Transport Partner, Kevin Bell (Picture), and supported by Joseph Causer, Todd Rayner and Richard Collins (as well as local lawyers in Ireland).
