Bidding process begins for £900m HS2 enabling works

 

HS2 Ltd has launched a procurement process for £900m worth of enabling works contracts for the high-speed rail network. The works will be divided into three separate packages, each worth £300m, and will cover the north, south and central areas of Phase 1, linking London and Birmingham via a high speed rail line.

 

Enabling works contracts include but are not limited to: planning, surveying design, excavation, clearance, demolition works, disposal, highways construction, car park construction and structural reinforcement.

 

A contract notice was published for ‘EWP12101 Enabling Works’ in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU), signifying the commencement of a formal procurement process.

 

The work packages available will last four years initially with the option of an extension for a further two years.

 

HS2 want to work closely with suppliers prior to the start of the procurement process. Beth West, HS2’s Commercial Director, commented: “To deliver Europe’s largest infrastructure project on time and on budget, we need to work closely with suppliers to ensure that sufficient planning is in place before the start of the procurement process. These contract awards do not pre-empt the granting of Royal Assent for the HS2 Bill currently going through Parliament. Only essential work would be carried out in preparation for the main construction period in 2017.”

 

Contractors have until 23 April to register their interest via HS2’s e-sourcing portal, Bravo. The opportunities will also be made available on Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) within the next few days.
