To support the new rail line between Bedford and Cambridge and works required to integrate the work already underway, EWR Co. will be collecting field data to support the ongoing design development and environmental impact assessment (EIA).
Consequently, EWR Co. is seeking to appoint a Supplier over a four-month period with the capability to deliver bat habitat surveys.
The full extent of the surveys is, at the time of this RfQ, yet to be fully established. This is dependent on the status of land access agreements along the route between Bedford and Cambridge. Land access will be limited to those locations where an agreement has been reached with the landowners; this process is ongoing. Where access agreements to land parcels come forward, those parcels will be released for inclusion within the survey scope.
The survey window is expected to extend from October 2020 to January 2021 (approximately four months in duration).
The SMA (Survey Management Agent) will develop and maintain a full survey programme for the Supplier. This will be a dynamic document which will change on a daily basis to reflect changes to land access, or other factors (such as unsuitable weather etc).
