Grosvenor Services Awarded TfL Silvertown Tunnel Security Contract

Listen to this article
Charter Security, a subsidiary of Grosvenor Services Group, has secured a three-year contract with Riverlinx CJV to provide security at Transport for London’s (TfL) Silvertown Tunnel construction site.The 1.4km long tunnel, which Riverlinx CJV are constructing on behalf of TfL, will run underneath the Thames and connect Silvertown to Greenwich Peninsula. This will be the first tunnel constructed under the Thames in over 30 years. Construction began over the summer, with work sites built on both sides of the river in Newham and North Greenwich.

To secure both construction sites, Riverlinx CJV has enlisted the support of trusted partner Charter Security, part of Grosvenor Services Group. The three-year contract, valued in excess of £4.5 million, will provide approximately 22 security officers working round the clock on either side of the river.

In January 2022, Charter Security completed a seven-year contract of work on the Crossrail project in Whitechapel. It was Charter Security’s ability to deliver high-quality service on a project of this scale that attracted Riverlinx CJV to partner with the firm for the Silvertown project.

Bernard McCauley, group managing director, Grosvenor Services Group, comments: “We’re really delighted to be working in partnership with the Riverlinx CJV consortium on this historic project, which will see the first tunnel constructed under the Thames in more than 30 years.

“After the Crossrail project, I think it’s become clear just how well placed we are to take on projects of this scale. I’m proud of our team and the work they have already achieved. We’re committed to maintaining this level of reliability, diligence and excellence over the next three years.”

When it opens in 2025, the Silvertown Tunnel will help alleviate some of the congestion that plagues the Blackwall Tunnel, significantly cutting journey times, reducing the environmental impacts of traffic congestion on some of London’s most polluted roads, and improving access to public transport links with the introduction of new bus routes.
