Transport for London (TfL) has announced that Siemens Mobility has landed a £1.5bn contract to design and build the next generation of Tube trains for the Piccadilly Line.

The order marks the first under the bumper deep Tube upgrade programme involving upgrades for four lines - the Bakerloo, Central, Waterloo & City and Piccadilly - and will involve the replacement of the entire 1970s Piccadilly Line fleet.
