A Mace joint venture has been named as Transport for London’s programme support partner for the upgrade of four major underground lines.
Mace won the contract as part of a JV with project management consultancy CPC Project Services and will now oversee upgrade work on the District, Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines.
The Four Lines Modernisation (4LM) programme will renew the current signalling systems and bring in advanced automated train controls for the lines.
Mace and CPC will be tasked with reviewing the programme of works for 4LM, supporting its leadership team during the work and looking at how the programme’s partners will be incentivised throughout the scheme.
This is the third major transport win for Mace and CPC.
The pair are already working together on TfL’s Tramlink programme and as part of a joint delivery partner consortium for London Underground’s Crossrail and stations programme.
Mace programme director David Martin said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to support London Underground in creating a high-performing team to drive the programme forward.
“There are already some excellent partners on board and we’re looking to complement their skills, bring insight from our work on major programmes and help deliver this critical scheme for London’s transport network.”
CPC partner Steve Mole said: “The CPC/Mace team will bring our expertise in leading the delivery of complex systems and projects in transport to 4LM.
“We will work in partnership with London Underground and its supply chain to engage collaboratively and drive improvements to services and capacity for the tube.”
