TfL remains on schedule to award the contract to design and develop the new vehicle by the end of this year. Two bidders have been shortlisted following evaluation of initial tenders. The detailed design and development phase will last for approximately two years with the first prototype on the streets by mid 2011 and the first production vehicles being delivered in early 2012.
