Decision details

Soar Valley Way Bridge - Repairs to bridge parapet

Decision Maker: Director of Environment and Transport

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

Soar Valley Way is a main outer distributor dual carriageway road near to Fosse Park, Leicester. Lengths of Bridge Parapet adjacent to both Lane 2 and the central reserve on Soar Valley Way bridge were damaged in a road traffic accident in late 2018. In the interim the road has been operating to a reduced speed limit with TVCB’s in place in lieu of the damaged bridge parapet.
The County Council has now made sufficient funds available to upgrade the whole length of parapet adjacent to the centre reserve (approximately 60 metres in each direction). Road space booking is available from Monday July 15 to Friday July 26 2019, traditionally when traffic in Leicester is quieter and hence the work will cause less disruption.

Tenders have been sought on a reduced tender period in order to meet the road space available. The tender has been advertised through the County Council tender portal “East Mids Tenders”.

Decision:

To approve the appointment of Messrs Danaher.

Alternative options considered:

The option of whether to accept or not Variant Tenders was considered with Central Procurement prior to issuing the tender documents. It was decided not to permit Variant Tenders.
