Morgan Sindall awarded a place on Transport for London's Surface Transport Major Projects Framework

Morgan Sindall has been awarded one of three places on Transport for London’s (TfL) Surface Transport Major Projects Framework. The four-year framework is anticipated to be worth £500 million overall.

The framework, which commences in early 2017, entails the design and delivery of complex civil engineering construction projects as part of TfL’s £4bn investment in London’s roads. These include the enhancement and refurbishment of highways, tunnels, bridges and other structures across Greater London on TfL’s road network.

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.’

‘We are looking forward to starting work and excited for the opportunities this brings as we begin the new year.’

This win follows Morgan Sindall’s recent award, in joint venture, to the Central package of HS2’s three enabling works contracts, with work including ecology and environmental works, demolition, archaeology, utility diversions and highway realignments. In December, Morgan Sindall was also awarded a place on London Underground’s eight-year ‘Future Stations’ Civils and Tunnelling Works framework worth £350 million.

Meanwhile, Morgan Sindall has recently completed, in joint venture, a £105 million construction contract for the M1 smart motorway scheme - to add much-needed capacity to six miles of the M1 between junctions 39 and 42, as well as currently upgrading the A1 to motorway standard from Leeming to Barton in North Yorkshire. In Scotland, the company continues its work on the Edinburgh-Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP) alliance for Network Rail. The division was awarded a £113 million position on the £250 million alliance in November 2014. The two-year project will deliver a critical rail infrastructure upgrade between Scotland’s two principal cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow, and forms part of the £742 million Scottish Government-funded investment to transform transport in the country.
