Cableways are used to measure open river current flow of water and generally used where it is not possible to carry out the activity safely by wading into the river. There are 61 cableway sites that require inspection, service and remedial maintenance in the northern region.

All cableways are to be inspected, serviced and load tested annually in accordance with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and BS EN ISO 4375:2014.

The framework is a new procurement approach for the provision of the inspection and service maintenance of cableways, bringing the service requirement together throughout England.

In addition, the framework will incorporate the surveying of all English Cableways sites to create an operational manual for each site, and a single asset log for English Cableways.

It is proposed that a procurement is conducted via an open procedure in accordance with the Public Contract Regulations 2015 (PCRs) to develop a national framework agreement for a period of 4 years based on an initial placement of 2 years with the option to extend placements for a third and fourth year.
