The Board of London Transport announces that the preferred bidder to acquire the sub-surface Public Private Partnership infrastructure company on the Circle, District, Metropolitan, Hammersmith and City and East London lines (Infraco SSL) is Metronet.

The next step is for Metronet to engage in final exclusive negotiations with London Underground to conclude the PPP contract. Conclusion of the PPP contract is expected in late 2001.

While Metronet has been named preferred bidder on SSL, LINC will be held in reserve.

Announcing the preferred bidder, London Underground Chairman and Managing Director, Derek Smith, stated:

'We have selected a strong consortium and I am confident that Metronet is the right bidder to work in partnership with London Underground into the future.'
