A 50:50 joint venture of Tarmac and Kier has secured a contract from  the Transport for London(TfL) to deliver construction, renewal, and enhancement of highways infrastructure.

The JV will be responsible for delivery of new schemes to improve walking and cycling.

Running from April this year to March 2027, this Surface Transport Infrastructure Construction Framework is intended for use by TfL, London Boroughs and other authorities.

The JV has been appointed as one of the three main contractors to share a third of the framework’s Level 0 and 1 works.

These works feature construction schemes and design development work.

Under the framework, the core contractors will work on medium complexity projects, typically of up to $34m (£25m). The high complexity projects, worth over $34m (£25m), will be open to core contractors and two other framework contractors under mini competitions.

The projects feature construction of new, and renewal of existing assets that include highway infrastructure, bridges, road tunnels and river assets.

Additionally, the projects include those that work towards making London’s road network more sustainable such as the expanding network of Cycleways.

Kier Highways group managing director Joe Incutti said: “We have a wealth of experience in the delivery of new road infrastructure projects, as well as the maintenance of existing assets both inside the capital and across the UK.

“We are pleased that we have been appointed to this framework and look forward to extending our relationship as a trusted delivery partner to our client, Transport for London. Working collaboratively with Tarmac we will continue to support the delivery of improvements to the Transport for London road network.”
