The PPP provides vital investment to renew the Underground.  We have repeatedly made clear our concerns with Metronet's performance and delivery of maintenance and renewal work. It is clearly time for an end to the excuses.  It is up to Metronet's shareholder companies ' Atkins, Balfour Beatty, Bombardier, EDF Energy and Thames Water ' to take the action necessary to deliver on their promises to London.
