Serco, the international service company, announced on Tuesday a 3-year contract extension by Emaar Properties to continue management of the operations and maintenance of the Downtown Dubai Trolley System until 2019.

Serco said in a statement that its participation in the project began in August 2014 when appointed by Emaar under an early operator involvement contract, giving advice on the system during the design phase.

David J Greer, CEO Serco Middle East said: “This award asserts our position as the region’s leading provider of high quality transport operations and maintenance services. The trolley is the first of its type in the Middle East and we are delighted to extend our partnership with Emaar and to continue to deliver the highest quality of service to the public.”

The initial operation and maintenance contract was awarded to Serco in 2015 and has now been extended until 2019. More info
