Network Rail is on the hunt for an outfit to deliver design and consultancy services for London’s proposed £27 billion Crossrail 2 line
The winning team will focus on ‘On Network’ above ground elements of the new line which will link to existing rail infrastructure in the south-west and north-east of the capital.
Planned to connect Surrey with Hertfordshire, Crossrail 2 will include a tunnel beneath central London between Wimbledon and Tottenham Hale.
Network Rail is taking responsibility for the ‘On Network’ sections of the line while Transport for London will cover the underground ‘core’ elements.
The latest contract, expected to be worth up to £60 million, covers design work for ‘On Network’ railway construction and the successful team will be expected to deliver outline plans and construction methodologies.
Environmental impact studies, land requirement assessments, risk forecasts, topographical surveys and stakeholder consultations will also be required.
Originally planned as the Chelsea-Hackney line in 1970s, the proposed railway was resurrected in recent years following plans to transform Euston into a new terminus for High Speed 2.
A revised route was published earlier this year and the project’s development phase is expected to start in April 2016 with construction planned for the early 2020s.
The deadline for requests to participate is 11am on 14 September.
