Global law firm Ashurst has advised Keolis Downer, a leading operator of public transport services with 4,900 employees and a presence in five Australian states, on its successful proposal to the NSW Government to operate and maintain bus services in Sydney’s Northern Beaches and the lower North Shore.
The contract will see the introduction of 125 Electric buses over the next eight years, delivering more sustainable transport options for the local community from two newly electrified depots in Brookvale and Mona Vale, as well as innovative headway technology on the B-Line and the continuation of the popular Keoride On Demand Transport Service.
Ashurst partner Alex Guy commented:
“We are delighted to have assisted Keolis Downer in its successful proposal to NSW Government, which will see a range of exciting initiatives that will help TfNSW deliver an enhanced passenger experience on a value for money basis.”
The Ashurst team was led by partner Alex Guy, who was assisted by partners Ratha Nabanidham, Anne Reffay, senior associates Eloise Moore and Manisha Pannu, consultant Kim Broadbent and lawyers Louis Rainguenet, Alex Martin and Zoe Hinchliffe.
