The development of the programme establishing the construction sequence and temporary traffic management proposals sufficient to reach agreement on the Target
The development and completion of a ground investigation contract using the NEC3 engineering and construction contract Option B to provide information to inform the design and development of the Target
The development and completion of an archaeological investigation contract using the NEC3 engineering and construction contract Option B to provide information to inform the design and development of the Target
The production of a post contract award Building Information Modelling (BIM) Execution Plan and Master Information Delivery Plan (MIDP) for the scheme in accordance with the requirements for BIM maturity level 2 established by Chapter 7 of Publicly Available Specification PAS 1192-2: 2013.

The works required under this contract involves the design and construction of a new grade separated interchange to replace the existing York Street signalised gyratory system in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Works will include the construction of an overall length of approximately 5km of road pavement, including new pavement construction and works to existing carriageways. The interchange requires the widening and realignment of the Westlink north of the Clifton Street junction, with new interchange links in a generally east to north-east direction providing connection to and from the M2 motorway, along with additional interchange links in an eastern direction to provide connection to and from the M3 motorway. These links are aligned below the existing superstructure of the Lagan road and Dargan rail bridges and between their various substructure,. Bridges at York Street and Dock Street are proposed to grade separate these interchange links from the existing surface streets. Additional slip roads are provided from the interchange links to the surface streets at York Street, Dock Street, Nelson Street and Duncrue Street.
The following principal work activities are included:
1. Detailed design and construction of roads and associated structures. The scheme will require the detailed design and construction of: four new overbridges; widening of two existing bridges; extension of an existing pedestrian underpass; twenty-two new retaining walls; several services culverts; the underpinning of the existing Lagan Bridge foundations in areas of restricted headroom; the strengthening of the existing Dargan Bridge foundations in areas of restricted headroom; the construction of four new underpasses with approximately 2km of embedded retaining walls, including the construction of approximately 100m of embedded retaining walls in areas of low headroom and limited lateral clearance to existing structures.
2. Detailed design and construction of drainage systems, including a new pumping station facility and associated outfall to existing drainage infrastructure subject to tidal conditions
3. Detailed design and construction of earthworks, taking account of evidenced poor ground conditions and the construction of steepened earthwork slopes adjacent to existing retaining wall structures and residential properties
4. Detailed design and construction of new road pavements
5. Detailed design and construction of associated major and minor utility diversion works in liaison with the relevant statutory undertakers
