Step forward in Pendolino lengthening project

Agreement has been reached with Virgin Rail Projects Ltd to support the Department for Transport's plans to introduce longer 'Pendolino' trains on the West Coast Main Line.

The agreement - a Notice to Proceed - means that Virgin Rail Projects Ltd is the chosen bidder for the Service Provider contract.

The Service Provider will support DfT throughout the design, manufacture, delivery, testing and commissioning of new 'Pendolino' rolling stock through to the end of the current West Coast franchise, on 31st March 2012.

A 'Notice to Proceed' means that Virgin Rail Projects Ltd can now review and enter into Interim Lease and Interim maintenance contracts for the new rolling stock.

Transport Minister Rosie Winterton said:

"Passengers will see a 45% increase in long distance services because of the £8.8bn West Coast Main Line modernisation, but we want to secure improvements into the future too. This agreement is a key part of our future plans for the line."
