Transport for London (TfL), the Contracting Authority, intends to procure a contractor to deliver the detailed design and construction for the redevelopment of Kingston Cromwell Road Bus Station.
The bus station replacement is a TfL public transport project intended to address existing passenger congestion issues, accommodate increased passenger numbers using the station and improve the passenger environment.
The station currently consists of:
— a customer information office and a small retail unit at the western end;
— a driver mess room, public toilets, an operational office and storage building at the eastern end; and
— a bus station canopy.
The scope of works for the detailed design and construction of the bus station includes:
— demolition of existing bus station buildings;
— civil engineering works including kerbs, drainage, lighting, surfacing;
— highways and traffic works and management;
— structural works including canopy;
— mechanical and electrical works;
— utility diversions; and
— temporary works.
The area of Kingston where the bus station is located can become congested especially during the evening due to the local cinema complex and works will have to be managed accordingly. Key stakeholders for the project include the local residents, businesses and Network Rail. The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames is also a key stakeholder as the work lies within their highway boundary.
