A joint venture between Tarmac and Kier (TKJV) has been awarded the Lot 2 contract of the Transport for London (TfL) Highways Maintenance and Project Framework to maintain and improve highways and related assets covering a 189km network in north London.
Metis has long-standing relationships with Tarmac and Kier and, having supported TKJV through the bid phase, we are looking forward to working in partnership with them to provide our design and other consultancy services through the framework.
The framework will run for eight years, with the potential to be extended by an additional four. Mobilisation is due to commence this month and the contract is due to start in April 2021. It can be accessed by TfL and all London Boroughs, regardless of geographical location.
Glynn Barton, TfL’s Director of Network Management, said: “Our network of red routes are the arteries of London’s road network and play a vital role in helping people get around the capital safely, whether they are walking, cycling, getting the bus or driving. These new maintenance and small projects frameworks will help us to keep these roads safe and well-maintained for years to come, as we work to cut road danger and congestion and make London one of the best cities for walking and cycling”.
