The Mayor

Transport for London issued a notice to the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) in April 2014 to purchase a new fleet of four car trains to serve the Gospel Oak to Barking, Romford to Upminster, West Anglia Inner Suburban and Watford to Euston Junction routes. 

The Invitation to Tender was subsequently issued in August 2014 and a contract is expected to be awarded by summer 2015.
