Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Business and Environmental Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Award of the contract for Limehouse Lane Culvert Strengthening (No.1123 and 1124) to Thomas Armstrong Construction for £64,396 from the Revenue Budget. The form of contract is an NEC4 Short.

Reasons for the decision:

To comply with NYCCs statutory duty to maintain its Highway structures under Highways Act 1980. The bridge requires strengthening works to ensure it can withstand the traffic loads imposed upon it

Alternative options considered:

The alternative is to not do anything which could result in a continued deterioration of the structure which we believe would require restrictions on use. Any further deterioration would lead to a full rebuild being required and a large cost increase.
