Tube Lines’ legal bid fails

The company responsible for upgrading the Jubilee and Northern lines has failed in a bid to extract an extra £327m from London Underground. An independent adjudication “dismissed in its entirety” a claim by Tube Lines that the London Underground was in breach of its PPP contract. The ruling, by an independent QC, confirmed London Underground’s position that Tube Lines is responsible in full for the costs it has incurred arising from delays to the upgrade of the Jubilee and Northern lines.
