Costain and a Kier JV are among firms to win places on an £800m Transport for London framework for London’s roads.
The Surface Transport Infrastructure Construction Framework is for work helping TfL to expand cycle and walking schemes as well as renewals work on bridges, road tunnels and river assets.
The five firms awarded contracts are:
The framework runs from April 2021 until March 2027, for use by Transport for London, London boroughs and other authorities whose developments impact on TfL’s road network.
TfL director of project and programme delivery Nick Fairholme said: “This new contract framework will help us to deliver further vital walking and cycling schemes across London, and ensure that these important infrastructure assets on our road network are safe and well maintained for years to come.”
‘Red route’ frameworks, such as this one, are exempt from the transport body’s coronavirus-caused suspension of new contract awards because they replace a previous framework.
Last month Kier landed a £200m TfL maintenance contract for road tunnels and pumping stations.
