Thames Tideway Tunnel shortlist revealed

Thames Water has revealed the shortlisted consortiums for constructing its £2.3Bn Thames Tideway Tunnel project which is to start on site in 2016, creating over 9,000 jobs.

 

The project will be the biggest ever single tunnelling investment in the UK water industry and already employs 500 people, says Thames Water. The Planning Inspectorate is currently considering a Development Consent Application for the scheme which is expected to be granted.

 

Financing arrangements are being agreed between the government, water regulator Ofwat and Thames Water and selection of an independent Infrastructure Provider, who will be charged with financing and delivering the scheme under licence from Ofwat, is to start next year.

The Bam Nuttall, Balfour Beatty and Morgan Sindall joint venture is the only one selected for the shortlist on all three packages. The next stage in procuring the west package will get under way in November.
