Bombardier Transportation was the turnkey supplier for London Underground’s Victoria Line upgrade project. Bombardier’s scope included an entirely new signalling system overlaid on existing infrastructure, a control centre for the line and new vehicles. This powerful combination of new trains and an upgraded signalling system has significantly improved journey times and enabled London Underground to provide a more frequent, reliable and comfortable service for its customers.

  • 47 eight-car MOVIA 248 series trains serving 16 existing stations
  • Designed to carry 42,372 passengers per hour per direction during peak hours
  • The complete system was delivered in time for the London 2012 Summer Games
  • Bombardier’s scope included the design, build and supply of the trains, project management, system engineering and integration, testing and commissioning, training and manuals, signalling and automatic train control, technical support and spares supply agreement
