Highly unusual tender – calling all James Bond fans….
Transport for London (TfL) with the support of the London Development Agency (LDA) have been developing a proposal to run a cable car across the Thames between North Greenwich and Royal Victoria in east London. The vision is for the cable car to be a new iconic structure for London which provides both a viable public transport option for users and supports regeneration of the surrounding areas. The scheme is supported by the Mayor of London and aligns with his wider transport strategy for river crossings in east London.
TfL, or one of its subsidiaries, will be seeking to enter into a contract with a private sector party (or parties) to design and build the cable car before the 2012 London Olympics, with an option (exercisable by TfL /its subsidiary) for the private sector to operate and /or maintain the system for a period not likely to exceed to 3 years. It is likely that Candidates will be asked to bid on a fixed price basis to design and build the cable car and fixed daily fee to operate and /or maintain over the service phase to a specified level of service. TfL /its subsidiaries will retain control of fares, advertising, sponsorship and secondary income.
