FM Conway has made a strong start to 2012 by winning four new civil engineering contracts worth £6.5m, on behalf of Transport for London, Kent County Council, the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and Land Securities.

In London, FM Conway has been awarded a £3.5 million contract by Transport for London to complete the second phase of the East London Transit (ELT) project.

The project will deliver road improvements necessary to expand the ELT bus transit system to incorporate new housing developments situated along the route.

Using asphalt materials supplied by FM Conway’s new asphalt plant in Erith, the ELT project will see civil engineering works undertaken to improve resident’s access to community services, employment, education facilities and town centres.

In Kent, FM Conway has won a contract to complete hard and soft landscaping works to Churchfield Wharf in the Church Marshes Country Park near Sittingbourne.

The three month project will see FM Conway complete site clearance and earthmoving works as well as hard and soft landscaping. Works are expected to be completed by May 2012.

The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham has awarded FM Conway a £2.15 million contract to conduct civil engineering improvement works to the Borough’s iconic Shepherd’s Bush Common in the heart of Shepherd’s Bush Town Centre.

Landscaping works are due to begin shortly, which will include the installation of new kerbs, paths and cycle lanes, as well as improvements to CCTV and lighting systems to improve security.

FM Conway has also been awarded a contract worth £800k from Land Securities, the UK’s largest commercial property company, to deliver works on a project to construct up to 1,000 new homes to be built on the former Kodak site in Harrow, Middlesex.

FM Conway will provide construction of new access routes, junction improvements, traffic calming and facilities for cyclists and pedestrians under Section 278 of the Highways Act 1980.

Brian Morris, Civil Engineering Director for FM Conway, said: “In the current economic climate, procuring these four contracts has been a fantastic achievement and given the company a real boost.

"FM Conway is well known for delivering excellent quality of service on civil engineering projects and these tender wins are testament to our strength.”
