Client: Private Developer

Project: Realignment of London Road to the south of the existing Stonehouse Corner Roundabout on the A1090.

Cost: £10M

RIBA Project Stages: 0 - 7

Realignment of London Road to the south of the existing Stonehouse Corner Roundabout on the A1090. The new London Road alignment includes a new four-arm roundabout to the south of the HS1 viaduct. Separate arms from this roundabout will provide access to the Purfleet Real Estate site through a new Security Gate Complex. Total Project Integration is acting as employer’s agent, project manager and quantity surveyor.

The opportunity

A private developer obtained planning permission to construct new and improved access arrangements to the neighbouring businesses, which will bring about significant highways and environmental improvements to the local area. These works include a new entrance roundabout connecting to Stonehouse Roundabout and London Road and new secure entrance and exit facilities. Total Project Integration assisted the client in negotiating the required Section 278 Agreements and on the discharge of the Planning Conditions, whilst also advising the client upon appropriate tendering, contractual and insurance arrangements and prepared the relevant tender documents for the works.

The challenge

The footprint of the proposed roundabout sits over a vast amount of utility services that had to be diverted prior to the commencement of the construction works. The diversion works included the diversion of an 8” IP Gas Main, HV and LV cables, water mains and BT lines. Apart from coordinating the construction works Total Project Integration had to liaise with the different statutory undertakers and other stakeholders such us HS1 and Network Rail in order to obtain all the relevant permissions for the works.

The outcome

Once complete, the improved access will facilitate a reduction in HGV traffic on London Road and the improvement of the operational efficiency of the neighbouring businesses and that of the client.
