Transport for London awards Silvertown Tunnel contract despite legal threats

Transport for London (TfL) has officially awarded the contract for its controversial Silvertown Tunnel project despite concerns from clean air campaigners that it will entrench car dependency and worsen local air quality.

The contract was won by transport infrastructure company Cintra, Macquarie Capital, infrastructure management joint venture BAM PPP PGGM and engineers SK E&C, who form the Riverlink consortium. 

TfL named the consortium as its preferred bidder in May, prompting a legal challenge from Silver Thames Connect, another bidder for the contract that is still seeking damages over how the procurement process was managed. TfL denies that the process was unfair.
