Go-Ahead Group Plc was awarded a U.K. government contract to run Britain’s biggest rail network for three more years, a week after being fined 23.5 million pounds ($31 million) for mishandling another franchise.

The transport group will retain rights to operate Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern commuter-train services in the U.K. capital and southeast England until at least April 2025, the company said Friday.
