Four teams have been shortlisted for the £600m contract to build the Northern Line extension to Battersea.
Transport for London declined to confirm the names when contacted by Construction News, but sources confirmed that four teams are in the running for the deal.
The joint ventures are believed to be:
The work includes around 3,300 m of new tunnels, including over-run tunnels and ventilation shafts, as well as new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea.
Nine Elms is undergoing a separate regeneration aimed at creating 16,000 new homes.
The project also includes development of design and design assurance for civil engineering, tunneling, drainage and systems fit-out.
Utility diversions, enabling works and project management will also come under the winner’s remit.
The government has already confirmed it will contribute £1bn in the form of a UK Guarantee to the Northern Line extension to Battersea.
The NLE will require two new stations, one in Nine Elms and the other at Battersea Power Station, as well as an overrun tunnel westwards from the station at Battersea Power Station.
It is the latest in a series of contracts that will see the area regenerated, after Carillion was confirmed as winner of the first phase £400 million deal for the Battersea Power Station redevelopment in May.
Phase 1, also known as Circus West, will see 866 apartments and townhouses built with up to three bedrooms, raising to 18 storeys at its peak. The first residential occupancy is expected in 2016.
