Bam Nuttall and John Sisk & Sons have landed deals worth a combined total of £120m to deliver transport improvements in Leeds.
Leeds City Council chose Bam as construction partner for a £90m deal to design and construct Leeds’ bus priority corridor.
The contract will include construction work on five key road and bus routes in the city, as well as upgrades to its park-and-ride facilities upgrades (pictured).
Meanwhile John Sisk & Sons won the £30m ‘city gateways’ contract that will focus on transport improvements and upgrades in the city centre.
The works make up part of the £173m Leeds Public Transport Investment Programme (LPTIP) aimed at improving transport connections through the Yorkshire city.
Works on the LPTIP are procured through the £1bn YORcivil2 framework.
Bam Nuttall and Sisk’s works will be delivered in phases from this year, with the full LPTIP expected to be completed by 2021.
WSP is currently Leeds City Council’s development partner on the programme.
Bam Nuttall divisional director Gareth Farrier: “It’s extremely satisfying to maintain and grow our presence, along with our designers Mott MacDonald, in such a vibrant and ambitious city.”
