Renewal of Eurostar Security Contract
Eurostar, the high speed passenger rail service linking the UK and mainland Europe, has extended its security contract with Mitie at St Pancras International Station in London and its Engineering Centre in Temple Mills by another three years.
The new contract with the train operator provides for a further two years.
Mitie, which has provided services to Eurostar for over 14 years, was awarded the contract following a competitive retender process and will continue to deliver a wide range of security and customer services for Eurostar including passenger security screening, train searches, hosting e-gates, CCTV monitoring at the Temple Mills site, and overseeing access to restricted zones across both sites.
The integrated facility services provider will also provide dedicated transport sector security analyses and updates via its Intelligence Security Operations Centre (ISOC) in Northampton.
With more than half of staff involved already having worked on the contract for over 15 years, Mitie’s team of Security Officers are experienced in supporting the smooth running of Eurostar’s services, and creating a positive and safe experience for millions of passengers travelling on Eurostar trains.
Jason Towse, Managing Director of Business Services at Mitie, says: “We are delighted to be continuing our strong relationship.
“We look forward to continuing to work together over the coming years to ensure the millions of passengers travelling on the Eurostar annually enjoy safe and pleasant journeys.”
