Lake Lothing Third Crossing Build Contract
Suffolk County Council intends to undertake a procurement later in 2019 to award a contract for the build of the Lake Lothing Third Crossing in Lowestoft, Suffolk. We would like civil engineering main contracting companies who are interested in bidding for the opportunity to register their interest in advance of a market engagement event to be held in Lowestoft 30.10.2019.
Suffolk County Council intends to undertake the procurement in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 restricted procedure. The new crossing will be a multi-span bridge which includes a rolling bascule opening section, a section which will span the existing East Suffolk Line on the North side of the lake. The new bridge will have a 12 meter air draft height which will enable smaller vessels to pass underneath without an opening. The new crossing of Lake Lothing will include footway/cycleways on both sides and a control tower inclusive of plant room. Further information and a fly through video of the project can be found at https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/transport-planning/lake-lothing-3rd-crossing/
To express an interest in the opportunity and to register your request to attend the market engagement event you should email email@example.com by 25.12.2019.
