Addleshaws and Hogan Lovells win roles on multibillion rail upgrade programme
Addleshaw Goddard and Hogan Lovells have won work on a major rail deal that has seen the Department for Transport (DfT) place a £1.2bn order for 270 new high-speed trains for the East Coast Main Line. The DfT last week awarded the contract to Agility Trains, a joint venture between Hitachi Rail Europe and John Laing Investments, as part of its Intercity Express Programme (IEP) to upgrade the UK's rail system. The carriages will be manufactured at Hitachi's new factory in County Durham, with the deal coming after the DfT last year agreed an initial £4.5bn order with Agility.
