The UK Trains division of passenger transport group Arriva has selected Carillion as its preferred delivery partner for FM services, including grounds maintenance, for the Northern Rail franchise estate.
Service delivery is scheduled to start in April 2016. The initial delivery period is for nine years, with a possible one-year extension.
In its pre-close of trading update Carillion announced it was on track to achieve full-year targets, with strong cash flow and revenue growth.
Its total order book (secured and probable orders) is expected to remain strong at around £17bn, and its pipeline of contract opportunities is expected to increase to more than £41bn.
Carillion will announce its 2015 preliminary results on 3 March 2016.
