The Silvertown Tunnel project is being delivered by the Riverlinx consortium under a design, build, finance, operate and maintain contract with Transport for London (TfL), funded through private project finance.

Upon the expected opening of the facility in 2025, the consortium will receive Availability Payments from TfL for 25 years at £65 million per annum, which is index (RPI) linked as well as performance (incident response, asset inspection and maintenance, management reporting to TfL) dependent.
Due to the pandemic, energy crisis and other factors, the estimate final cost has risen from £1 billion to £1.2 billion.
Coursework Requirement

(1) Report – Appraise the refinancing options at practical completion and propose a refinancing plan (in MS Word or PDF format). This should include a discussion of the relevant risks, their potential impact on the cashflow, and assumptions made; and
(50%)
(2) Cashflow forecast – Produce one cashflow model for the project with the existing financial arrangement from year 2019 up to 2025 as well as between year 2025 to 2050 with the proposed refinancing plan. The model must be done in Excel with all in-cell formulas. All assumptions, finance-related costs, yearly balance and profitability should be shown clearly.
(50%)
The report should be formally structured and be approximately 2,500 words long (excluding cashflow). A word count must be provided.

To be submitted on Moodle (with Turnitin) before Sunday 14th May 2023, 11:59pm.
The report should be a single file in MS Word or PDF format, plus an Excel workbook for the cashflow.
Scanned/Digitally-copied text apart from tables and figures in the file will not be marked.
Late Submission
The Late Submission and Extenuating Circumstances Notification form in MyAccount allows you to:
• Request the opportunity to submit your work up to 5 working days late for an uncapped mark if this is included as part of your DDS support arrangements;
• Notify us of an unexpected issue which is outside of your control that is impacting an assessment (an ‘Extenuating Circumstance’), which may allow an uncapped late submission or the opportunity to attempt the assessment at another time;
• Request additional time to submit an upcoming piece of coursework, without having a valid extenuating circumstance (but this will incur a marking penalty of 5% for each working day past the deadline, up to 5 working days).
If you submit an assessment late (up to 5 working days max.) and do not notify us in advance via the Late Submission and Extenuating Circumstances Notification form, your mark will be capped at a pass.
If you do not attempt your assessment within 5 working days of the main deadline, then you will usually be able to attempt the assessment again during the resit period, but your mark will be capped at a pass (unless you are able to provide evidence of a valid Extenuating Circumstance, in addition to giving a reason why you were unable to submit this evidence before the deadline had passed).
