Thames Tunnel to target Asian contractors


Surely Mr Stride did not just say “We plan to split the scheme into three sections, which are designed to minimise the need for contractor interaction.” That they would split the project down to include a wider group of smaller but nevertheless competent and viable bidders would be reasonable even though problems will arise from the three potential contracts being on the table presumably at the same time. While there may be only two contractor interfaces the coordinated performance of the separate contracts will be critical to a whole project being delivered as one. On a linea job there are enormous possibilites for some sections to be finished, paid up and even out of of their guarantee perods before the last one is delivered and the investment can be put to its use.
