“We’re committed to delivering better services and more frequent trains, with a strong focus on increased levels of safety and reliability,” Keolis Downer Adelaide Managing Director, Robert Tatton-Jones, says.
“We want to make public transport the first choice for commuters by delivering world-class services and we will be out on the network on a regular basis, through our ‘Meet the Managers’ sessions to hear from our customers.
“Our Passenger Service Assistants will be actively engaging with passengers, and will be equipped with smart devices enabling them to provide real-time information on the services.”
Downer has been awarded a Field Services contract by Telstra valued at an estimated $330 million over a maximum term of five years.
Downer’s metering services business, Skilltech, has been awarded a new water meter reading contract with SA Water, helping to provide quality water services to more than 1.7 million South Australian customers.
Downer was awarded two contracts by the New South Wales Government in February to upgrade six Sydney train stations to meet Metro rail standards.
Downer has successfully completed the refinancing of the Group’s debt platform with the establishment of a new $1.4 billion Sustainability Linked Loan (SLL) facility, which was the largest SLL in Australia in 2020.
