Vinci has taken on Carillion’s facilities management service contract for the London Overground network.
Client Arriva Rail London confirmed Vinci Facilities had been appointed under an initial 12-month deal.
The £7.5m contract covers cleaning, fault rectification and planned maintenance activities across 81 London Overground stations, as well as the planning and scheduling of work and trackside FM delivery works.
The French contracting giant said it had taken on 119 staff from Carillion as part of the deal.
Vinci Facilities managing director Tony Raikes said: “One of the most rewarding things about this contract with Arriva Rail London is our teams’ ability to help the client and step in to maintain FM services after the demise of Carillion.
“It is an exciting project, our first on the Overground network, building on our successes with TfL. We’re looking forward to taking the project beyond the initial 12-months.”
Transport secretary Chris Grayling revealed last month that Carillion held transport contracts worth nearly £3.6bn before it went into liquidation.
Amey snapped up a number of Carillion’s key rail contracts from Network Rail shortly after its liquidation.
