£2.3 bn Thames Mega Sewer Awarded to Three Joint Ventures
Posted on: 05/03/2015

Three joint ventures have been announced to work together in creating a mega sewer tunnel which will exist under the River Thames in London.

Thames Tideway Tunnel has selected the following companies for the respective parts of the tunnel:

West: JV includes- Bam Nuttall, Morgan Sindall and Balfour Beatty

Central: JV includes- Ferrovial Agroman and Laing O’Rourke

East: Costain, JV includes- Vinci Construction Grands Projets and Bachy Soletanche.

Chief executive of the Thames Tideway Tunnel said: “We have selected our preferred bidders to work on the three main works packages because we have absolute faith in their ability to carry out these major pieces of work safely, considerately and sustainably and we are looking forward to working with them to offer the thousands of jobs that will help make this project a reality.”

“This is not just an engineering project, this is about reconnecting London with its river by cleaning it up and making it something that is integral to our city, for the growing population, thrive businesses and to increase leisure uses. This is a unique opportunity to be involved in improving London’s environment and economy and we’re very excited for what the future holds.”

The firms were selected by Thames Tideway Tunnel on account of their excellent reputation and ability to deliver the scale of work on budget and on time. The project will require around £2.3bn in funding, and will create over 4,000 direct sustainable jobs and a further 5,000 through the supply chain.

This is an exciting opportunity for contractors working within the London area to get involved with a project that aimed at improving the London community.
