Eversheds advises on DfT deal

Friday April 15th, 2011

Law firm Eversheds announced that it recently advised the Department for Transport on a recent £10m investment to provide 20 additional rail carriages on commuter trains in Leeds.

From December 2011, commuters in the Leeds area will benefit from more than 2,000 extra seats each day as more trains will run at peak times, improving the service in the region. This project forms part of the 650 additional carriages the Government will introduce on to the UK’s rail network by 2014.

The Eversheds team advising the Department for Transport was led by Partner Peter McCormack.

Peter McCormack said: “This investment in transport in Leeds and surrounding area will improve the services that commuters use on a daily basis. Rail services are an important part of the growth of British economy and we are pleased to continue to assist the Department for Transport with its plans to increase capacity across the rail network.”
