TfL signs £500M framework deal with three contractors

Vauxhall Bridge Road

Transport for London (TfL) has signed a four-year highways and tunnels framework agreement with Costain, Morgan Sindall and Skanska.

The £500M framework covers design and construction of some of London’s highest profile road improvements.

TfL said framework projects could include proposed Fiveways scheme in Croydon, removal of the Vauxhall gyratory, as well as major asset renewals, including work on the A40 Westway.

“We are delighted to be working with Costain, Morgan Sindall and Skanska over the next four years on a range of high profile and complex civil engineering projects,” said TfL director of projects and programmes Nick Fairholme. “Each contractor brings something unique to the table and all have experience in designing and building major schemes, which will ensure Londoners get these key projects delivered in the most effective and efficient way.”

TfL said the four year framewor could be extended by a further two years at its discretion.

Costain chief executive Andrew Wyllie said: “We are delighted that TfL has again chosen Costain as a delivery partner for the Major Projects Framework. It is a reflection of our strong track record in applying innovative techniques in highways.”

Morgan Sindall managing director of infrastructure Nick Fletcher said: “The projects within this framework call upon a wide variety of expertise, including highways, bridge and tunnelling skills - all of which we are well-placed to deliver, having a strong project history with similar schemes.”

Skanska operations director Mark Shopland said: “We are proud to be involved in this framework and to be contributing towards these high profile project that will improve the road network for people in London.”

  • It’s great that this is the first time TfL has recognised the value of behavioural assessments within the procurement process to bring deeper insights into the selection of suppliers. JCP Consultancy is very proud to have supported TfL on this major framework.
