A team led by Bam finally signed a $1 billion contract with Transport for London to start work on the Silvertown Tunnel project, six months after being selected for the position. The new 1.4 km long twin-drilling tunnel will be built to relieve congestion in east London and improve the reliability of the existing Blackwall tunnel by providing an alternative river crossing route between the Royal Docks and the Greenwich Peninsula.
