WSP/Parsons Brinckerhoff will play a key part in the regeneration of Liverpool and the surrounding area after being appointed by Merseytravel on a four-year transport and infrastructure framework.
The company was selected on eight out of the 14 lots, reflecting their wealth of experience across transport and infrastructure sectors, including: rail, tunnels, bridges, buildings and highways. The appointed firms will compete for work under each lot on a mini-competition basis. The £250m framework, which will run from 2015 to 2019, primarily concerns Merseytravel’s assets and will also be available to six other regional authorities and associate members of the Liverpool city region.
The Merseytravel Consultancy Services Multi-Party Framework Agreement will help to boost economic regeneration in the Liverpool city region, in line with the proposed Northern Powerhouse Directive. The company will provide its expertise in civil and structural engineering, mechanical and electrical engineering, transportation, safety quality and environment, highways infrastructure, project and programme management, building surveyor and business case development.
Richard McWilliam, framework manager from WSP/Parsons Brinckerhoff, said: “This framework plays a crucial part in the regeneration of Liverpool and the wider Mersey area. Our experience in delivering high quality engineering consultancy and infrastructure services to Merseytravel over the past 10 years has meant that we are well placed to deliver their key initiatives.”
