This document seeks comments on Ofwat’s proposal to issue a further waiver notice to Bazalgette Tunnel Limited (trading as Tideway), the infrastructure provider (IP) delivering the Thames Tideway Tunnel Project (the Project).
Since issuing Tideway with a project licence, on 24 August 2015, we have issued four notices under Regulation 6(8) of the Water Industry (Specified Infrastructure Projects) (English Undertakers) Regulations 2013 (the Regulations) dis-applying to a limited extent Tideway’s obligations to apply the procurement provisions set out in the Regulations. Tideway has now requested a further waiver which we have considered and propose granting, subject to any consultation responses we receive.
We welcome your responses to this consultation by close of business on 30 January 2018. You can email your responses to [email protected] or post them to: The Thames Tideway Tunnel Project, Ofwat, Centre City Tower, 7 Hill Street, Birmingham B5 4UA.
