London Underground seeks contractors for £500m Bank station upgrade

London Underground has issued a tender notice looking for firms to offer “innovative ideas” in a £500 million revamp of Bank station in the City of London.

The operator is looking to appoint a single company or consortium to work on an extensive upgrade to one of London’s busiest underground stations, which was “built in expectation of passenger levels far less than those now using the station”, the OJEU notice says.  

The winning firm will be “best able to bring innovative ideas forward to identify and deliver the significant cost, risk, programme, and other benefits that may exist”, the document says.

Work includes constructing a 570m new section of the southbound Northern Line and transforming the existing southbound platform and some of the tunnel area into a new concourse and passage area.

The scope also includes building new large cross passages linking the newly formed concourse to the new southbound platform, new passageways, stairways and escalators to link the northern line to other lines.

Contractors must complete prequalification questionnaires by 20 December 2011.
