This is a resounding endorsement of our proposed BOMBARDIER AVENTRA train for Crossrail, which has proudly been designed and developed in the UK as an iconic and world-technology leading train for London.

Todays decision is a credit to the efforts of our entire workforce in the UK, including our 1,600 strong Derby-based design, engineering and manufacturing team who form a global centre of excellence for the rail industry, as well as our outstanding maintenance teams who support train operators right across the country and particularly in London as demonstrated during the London 2012 Olympics.
