TfL awards Skanska £4 million bus shelter contract

Transport for London has awarded a £4 million contract to Skanska for the electrical maintenance of all bus shelters across its network.

The contract will run for at least five years, with the option for a three-year extension.

Covering almost 12,000 shelters across Greater London, for the benefit of two-and-a-half billion journeys annually, the work encompasses planned and reactive maintenance, including electrical testing, light replacements and general repairs.

James Holmes, operations director at Skanska, said:

“In recent years we’ve significantly increased our portfolio of highways electrical projects, with upgrades to more modern, greener, street lighting taking place in several boroughs.

“Since 2012, we’ve been working with Transport for London on 7,000 bus shelters, roughly two thirds of the network, so increasing the scope of the contract is a natural progression. Our team are looking forward to bringing their skills to this expanded role.”
