LUL reshuffles for contract review

London Underground Limited (LUL) has promoted head of legal Sarah Atkins to director of reviews in preparation for its PPP contract review, which is slated for 2010.

Atkins will lead the review, which the company undertakes every six or seven years to examine all PPP contracts and to identify what LUL should be procuring and the costsinvolved.

LUL currently has six major PPP contracts, two of which are with failed Tube operator Metronet, which operates the subsurface Bakerloo, Central and Victoria Lines, and one is with Tube Lines, which runs the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly Lines.
