Transport for London has invited contractors to bid for a framework agreement covering part of its ‘Cycle Superhighways’ network.
The two-year framework is worth between £8m and £16m.
The Cycle Superhighways programme aims to increase cycling in London, through the construction of 12 easy to recognise routes which will help Londoners commute to work by bicycle or to access the local cycle network.
The scheme will be built in several phases. The first phase, currently under construction, is to deliver two pilot routes (3 and 7). The second phase is the delivery of the remaining 10 Cycle Superhighway routes.
This framework covers routes 2 and 8.
The first lot involves the implementation of schemes to create Route 2 of the Cycle Superhighways along the A118 and A11 corridor between Ilford in East London to Aldgate in Central London.
The second lot involves the construction of Route 8 along the A3 and A3205 corridor between Vale in South-West London to Vauxhall Cross in Central London.
Both lots will involve modifications to the existing highway infrastructure, including road markings and signing, carriageway resurfacing, street lighting, footways, anti-skid and other thin surfacing.
The deadline for expressions of interest is 16 April.
