Construction, Infrastructure and Rail News

This week’s Construction, Infrastructure, and Rail news:

Rail for London started preparing a shortlist of firms to bid for the £150m contract to construct an elevated extension from an existing railway line and a new station at Barking Riverside. The project is expected to start early 2018 with a completion date of summer 2020. The approved design for this project will be provided by Rail for London to firms invited to tender.

The Glasgow City Centre Development has named Gleeds as the Project Manager and Cost Manager for the £75m project. The project has planned a 12-storey new build element, incorporating 130,000 sq. ft. of office space, remodeling and refurbishment of a second building, formerly home to the retailer BHS. Subject to approvals the work is expected to begin in 2017.

The £4.2bn Thames Tideway Tunnel (Super-Sewer) project to clean up London’s river has selected Arcadis, Turner & Townsend and Gardiner & Theobold (G&T) to provide a variety of consultancy services on the project over the next four years. Construction of the 25km sewer tunnel under London is set to start this year and be completed in 2023.
