Costain wins place on strategic framework for TfL
23 February 2021
Costain has been awarded a place on Transport for London’s six-year Surface Transport Infrastructure Construction Framework (STIC), enabling safer and more sustainable journeys on London’s roads.
STIC will help ensure walking and cycling projects continue to be delivered to a high standard and that the capital’s road network has safe and well-maintained infrastructure for years to come.
Through the award, Costain will deliver:
- Renewals work on much of the infrastructure that the Transport for London Road Network depends on, including its bridges, road tunnels and river assets
- Enhancements to these assets where needed
- Early input, design and construction work.
These projects will be vital to enabling more people in the capital to make journeys by bike and on foot, which will help to cut congestion, air pollution and road danger across London. The framework will be used by TfL, London Boroughs and other authorities whose developments impact on the TfL Road Network.
Nick Fairholme, TfL's Director of Project and Programme Delivery, said: “Our network of red routes are the arteries of London’s road network and play a vital role in helping people get around the capital safely, whether they are walking, cycling, getting the bus or driving.
"This new contract framework will help us to deliver further vital walking and cycling schemes across London, and ensure that these important infrastructure assets on our road network are safe and well maintained for years to come.”
STIC will play an important role in TfL’s work to support a sustainable recovery for London and the wider UK economy.
