We further strengthened our presence in the transport sector by winning a seven-year contract to provide cleaning and security services for London’s Docklands Light Railway (DLR) on behalf of KeolisAmey Docklands.
The £32 million contract, which started in December 2014, covers seven routes and 45 depots and supports the 278,000 passengers that use the DLR every day.
Over 130 new staff transferred to Interserve to manage the 24/7 operation, which covers station and fleet cleaning, vegetation control, winterisation, depot security, events stewarding, security revenue protection and barrier control.
We were chosen by KeolisAmey Docklands to support the DLR due to our extensive experience in the transport sector. This includes servicing underground, overground and high-speed rail networks in the UK and Spain, as well as supporting critical rail infrastructure through maintaining tracks, depots, stations and offices for various transport authorities.
