Report of the Strategic Director, Economy, Innovation and Growth


Consideration has been given to an update on the Local Transport Plan Capital Programme, which provides a summary of the progress that has been made and any changes to the programme that have occurred as it stands in December 2020, nearing the end of Quarter 3.






That the revised programme for 2020/21 as set out in Appendices A and B to the report be approved and it be noted that there may be a need to review the schemes as the year progresses in line with available resources.






That the Service Director, Highways and Waste be authorised to award the relevant works under the terms of the Highways, Drainage and Street Lighting Maintenance Contract.






That the Service Director, Planning Policy, Climate Change and Strategic Transport be authorised to make changes to the approved programme following consultation with the Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, as and when the need arises.






That the indicative integrated transport and maintenance programmes for 2021/22 as set out in Appendices D and E to the report be approved as a basis for future planning.






That it be noted the Strategic Director, Housing, Environment and Healthy Communities awarded the contract for the Chainbridge Road Overbridge; Concrete Repairs through the Scape Framework Agreement for Civil Engineering and a tender exemption decision was taken by the Service Director, Highways and Waste, to extend this contract to procure the works for Team Street Viaduct; Concrete Repairs.




The above decisions have been made to enable the design and implementation of transport schemes in support of the Tyne and Wear Local Transport Plan and the Council’s policy objectives.
