Work is expected start on site next February 2022 and be completed in 2023.
Bids will be evaluated on the basis of 55/35/10 price/quality/social value with the closing date for submissions on 4 June.
TfWM will hold a bidders briefing day at 11am on Thursday 13 May 2021 via MS Teams in place of the usual site visit due to current Covid-19 restrictions.
