TfL picks five contractors for road structures and tunnels

Contractors Balfour Beatty, Bam Nuttall, Costain, Hochtief and Skanska were this week set to win work on Transport for London’s (TfL’s) £200M Structures and Tunnels Investment Programme.


Hammersmith: Strengthening work

The programme includes the strengthening, refurbishment and replacement of eight bridges and tunnels in London including the next phase of upgrades on the troubled Hammersmith flyover.

Projects are divided into threepackages based on location, type of work and value.

The TfL board was expected to approve the appointment of the contractors yesterday.

The framework will use Early Contractor Involvement. Ramboll and Parsons Brinckerhoff were appointed consultants for the work in November.

First up will be work package three - strengthening the 11 remaining spans of the Hammersmith flyover as a follow up to emergency strengthening last year. Work will begin in October.

The remaining packages will be completed by 2016. They include the complete reconstruction of the A1 Upper Holloway Bridge, a single span steel and cast iron bridge built in 1868 and major strengthening works to the A406 Power Road bridge - a three span reinforced concrete beam and slab bridge built around 1922.

Also requiring work is the A127 Ardleigh Green Railway Bridge, A1 Highbury Corner Bridge, the A406 Fore Street Tunnel and A316 Chiswick Bridge.
