Contractors sign £500m deal for London road works

Three contractors have signed a £500m deal with Transport for London to deliver a range of major road improvement projects over the next four years.

Under the deal Costain, Skanska and Morgan Sindall will work with TfL to design and build projects that will transform highways, reduce dangers on the roads, improve journey reliability and encourage cycling and walking. 

Schemes delivered using the framework are likely to include projects such as the proposed Fiveways scheme in Croydon and the removal of the Vauxhall gyratory, as well as major asset renewal and upgrades such as the A40 Westway structure.

The contract may be extended by two years at TfL’s discretion.

Nick Fairholme, TfL’s director of projects and programmes, said: “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.

“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.”

Nick Fletcher, managing director of infrastructure at Morgan Sindall, 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.”
