National Highways has named Turner & Townsend as its commercial partner on the vast Lower Thames Crossing scheme.
The appointment marks the completion of the Lower Thames Crossing integrated client team, comprised of Jacobs/Cowi/Arcadis as technical partner, and Jacobs as sole integration partner.
Across the eight-year contract, T&T will work as part of the integrated client team providing day-to-day cost, commercial and contract management, independent cost assurance and cost audit function across the whole £8.6bn Lower Thames Crossing programme.
Matt Palmer, Lower Thames Crossing Executive Director, said: “The Lower Thames Crossing is the most ambitious road project this country has seen since the M25 was completed 35 years ago, and will improve journeys, create new jobs and business opportunities, as well as bring new green spaces for the local community and wildlife.”
If given the green light construction of the main tunnel and link roads will support over 22,000 jobs during construction.
