Bam Nuttall win £85m job to refurbish the main airport road tunnel and cargo tunnel at Heathrow
Bam Nuttall has won a £85m job to refurbish the main airport road tunnel and cargo tunnel at Heathrow.
The civils contractor confirmed that it had been appointed to the job by Heathrow Airport Ltd, and is due to commence later this month.
Bam Nuttall will be in partnership with specialist mechanical and electrical contractor VVB on the project, after working with the firm on the upgrade to the bound bore of the Blackwall Tunnel.
The firms will be required to keep the tunnels open during the work in order avoid disruption to the airport, meaning the work to refurbish and improve the tunnel ventilation systems and upgrade the fire detection, suppression and alarm systems will take place over night and during pre planned lane closures.
The work is scheduled to complete at the end of February 2016.
