Contractor awarded multi storey car park
First Great Western appointed Bourne Parking to construct a new three-storey car park at Parkway Station work commenced on Saturday 13th July and continue until March 2014. The project, which will provide an additional 710 parking bays at the station, was originally due to be completed by March 2013. Work was scheduled to start last September 2013. The £13 million scheme is part of a third and final tranche of successful bids from the £100m Station Commercial Projects Fund, launched in 2011 by Network Rail and the Department for Transport.
Waste PFI project cancelled
The North London Waste Authority (NLWA) has decided to end its procurement for long-term waste management services. NLWA was to reach financial close on final tenders with only FCC/Skanska for its waste services contract, and E.On/Wheelabrator for its fuel use contract. The total cost of the PFI project was £4 billion. Construction would cost £519 million, excluding land costs, plus about £83 million for land. The Authority now believes that a less expensive solution to waste management for north London taxpayers can be found in a time when council finances are under enormous pressure. The Authority has decided to end the procurement process, and to pursue an alternative strategy that, by comparison, will result in a significant reduction in the cost of residual waste management. This strategy will be based on continuing to use the energy from waste facility at the Edmonton site for longer than previously planned, and developing a longer term strategy based on an energy recovery solution at the Edmonton site.
