Modernisation

Nexus is investing £370 million between 2010 and 2022 to renew tracks, power lines, technology and structures across the Metro system. This has helped reduce delays while improving accessibility for all customers.

Nexus has procured the delivery of a £362 million train fleet, with the support of the Government. Stadler, the Swiss train manufacturer, won the  contract to design, build and maintain the new fleet. View the new Metro fleet here.

Planned improvement work is noted on the calendar below.
