Siemens awarded $2 billion contract to build new London Tube trains

Germany’s Siemens has won a contract worth about £1.5 billion ($2 billion) to design and build 94 new generation trains for the Piccadilly Line on London’s metropolitan train network known as the Tube.

“The award of this contract is a significant step allowing Siemens Mobility Limited to progress its plan to build a new factory in Goole, East Yorkshire, to manufacture and commission trains,” said Transport for London, the public body in charge of the Tube, in a statement.
