Transport for London (TfL) has appointed Kier to deliver its new Maintenance and Management contract for road tunnels and pumping stations.
The work will include mechanical, electrical and control activities associated with each tunnel, renewals, safety inspections, intelligent transport systems and cleaning.
As part of this contract, Kier will be responsible for maintaining and managing 10 red route tunnels and 106 pump stations. The new contract will also see the management of all of TfL’s tunnels brought into the same team.
Kier said the new contract will play an important role in helping TfL tackle some of the biggest challenges its transport network faces, such as reducing road danger and congestion. The contract will ensure that TfL’s road network can continue to support millions of journeys across the capital each day, it added.
Kier Group managing director, Joe Incutti, comments: “As TfL moves into a number of new contracts for the maintenance and management of the strategic road network in our capital city, we look forward to continuing our established working relationship with TfL through the delivery of this prestigious new tunnels contract. Alongside our supply chain partners, we will continue to leverage our collective tunnel expertise in the capital to work collaboratively with TfL towards its goal of keeping London moving.”
