Crossrail to make joint programme and delivery partner announcement

Transport for London approved Crossrail's choice for the project's £100M programme partner role this week, but will delay the announcement until the choice for the £400M delivery partner is also confirmed, expected next month.

The programme partner role will be responsible for strategic management of the whole Crossrail scheme, and the three shortlisted bidders are:

  • Legacy 3 - a joint venture between Parsons Brinckerhoff, Balfour Beatty Management and Davis Langdon;

  • Bechtel

  • and Transcend - a joint venture between AECOM, CH2M HILL, and Nichols Group.

"We are looking to announce the programme partner close to or at the same time as the project delivery partner," said a spokesman for Crossrail.

"The two will have to work so closely together that we have brought the project delivery partner announcement forward, and we can relax a bit on the programme partner role."

There are four in the running for the project delivery partner role:

  • Legacy 3

  • Bechtel/Halcrow/Systra

  • Laing O'Rourke (with Atkins)

  • Capita Symonds & NNN joint venture

Crossrail will also shortly be announcing the first round of design contracts for those companies holding frameworks.
