The tender documents contain proposals for a ‘core scheme’ as well as the possible ‘additional works’. These additional works may be instructed at the commencement of the Contract, or by way of variation to the Contract during the construction period. For the avoidance of doubt the Council intends to initially award a contract for the ‘core scheme’ only and as such will conduct this tender assessment considering the ‘core scheme’ only.

The ‘core scheme’ works in Phase 1B comprise the following elements:

— Widening of the A33 to create a new bus lane in the south bound direction from Bennet Road Gyratory junction to Imperial Way junction. The road widening occurs largely adjacent to the existing carriageway in verges owned by the highway authority.

— Amendments to the traffic signal pedestrian crossings within the works and incorporation of a new traffic signal controlled bus priority junction in the southbound lane immediately prior to the Imperial Way Roundabout.

— Associated with the above are site clearance (including taking down of kerbs, traffic signs, lighting and street furniture etc), vehicle restraint systems, surface water drainage, earthworks, kerbing, paving and road surfacing, traffic signals and street lighting.

— Adjustments to Statutory utility equipment.

The ‘core scheme’ works in Phase 2 comprise the following elements:

— Widening of the A33 to create a new bus lane in the south bound direction from Kennet Island junction to Bennet Road Gyratory junction. The road widening occurs largely adjacent to the existing carriageway in verges owned by the highway authority.

— Associated with the above are site clearance (including taking down of kerbs, traffic signs, lighting and street furniture etc), vehicle restraint systems, surface water drainage, earthworks, kerbing, paving and road surfacing, traffic signals and street lighting.

Legal services

Thames Water Utilities Limited | Published November 18, 2016

Thames Water Utilities Limited (TWUL) wishes to undertake market consultation to raise market awareness and to inform its forthcoming legal services procurement strategy. TWUL's core legal services are currently delivered under a Managed Legal Services Agreement (‘MLS Agreement’) between TWUL and a law firm. The range of legal services delivered under the MLS Agreement is broad and includes (but is not limited to) employment, commercial, construction, regulation, competition and property law matters. Under the MLS Agreement there are a number of ‘out of scope’ legal services including advice related to Thames Tideway Tunnel, Price Review work and financing related legal advice. TWUL intends to commence the legal services procurement early in 2017 to replace and reshape the MLS Agreement upon its expiry in March 2018.
