Kier Highways wins £200m London road tunnels maintenance contract


Kier Highways has secured a maintenance and management contract worth £200m from Transport for London (TfL) for its road tunnels and pumping stations.

The scope of work under the contract involves the maintenance of TfL’s road tunnels and highway pump stations.

It also includes electrical, mechanical and control works connected with each tunnel, along with safety inspections, renewals, intelligent transport systems (ITS) and cleaning.

Under the terms of the contract, Kier will be in charge of maintaining and managing 10 tunnels and 106 pump stations.

The contract will see the maintenance of tunnels including A102 Blackwall Northbound, A102 Blackwall Southbound, A101 Rotherhithe, A12 Green Man, A12 George Green, A12 Eastway, A3211 Upper Thames Street, A2 Eltham Tunnel, A406 Fore Street, and A40 Hangar Lane.

As part of the new deal, Kier will also be responsible for the management of all of TfL’s tunnels, including its tunnel river crossings, besides maintenance for all its tunnels.

The company said that the work on the contract is scheduled to begin in April this year and will run until 2029, with an option to extend it by another four years.

Kier Highways Group managing director Joe Incutti said: “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.”
