Supporting Greater Manchester’s transport ambitions
We have been appointed to Transport for Greater Manchester’s (TfGM) Professional Services Framework to help deliver its vision for an integrated public transport network.
The framework runs until March 2025 and will be used by TfGM and the ten local authorities in Greater Manchester to deliver transport projects and programmes across the region. The new framework replaces TfGM’s previous TPS framework, which came to an end in March 2021.
We secured places on the project advisory and management services lot, and the programme and project management and project cost and commercial management sub-lots. Through the framework, we will support the local community by providing job opportunities for young people through apprenticeship schemes and provide tailored business and careers activities in schools to young adults through social value programmes.
Director Daimon Keith commented: "We’re delighted to be working with TfGM on this critically important infrastructure network for Manchester and the North West.
Improving transport infrastructure and connectivity plays an important role in driving economic growth and creating jobs locally, which is critical to the Government’s levelling up agenda.
Projects delivered through the framework will support Greater Manchester’s Right Mix Vision for 50 percent of all journeys to be made by walking, cycling and public transport by 2040 and its ambition to be net zero by 2038.
Our appointment to this framework cements our presence in Manchester. We are already working on a number of projects with TfGM and have recently reached practical completion on the brand-new Ashton-under-Lyne Interchange in partnership with Thameside Council.
