Amey wins Highways England contract

24 March 2016 | Marino Donati

Amey has been awarded a contract by Highways England to manage roads in the East Midlands.


Under the contract, Amey will be responsible for maintaining nearly 230 miles of East Midland’s strategic road network under a new maintenance and response contract.


Worth up to £300 million over 15 years, including extensions, the contract covers networks including stretches of the M1, M69, M45 and M6.


Amey said that as well as delivering routine highways maintenance such as defect repairs, emergency incident response, traffic management and severe weather service, the contract was one of a set of key new contracts in the East Midlands, where other supply chain partners will deliver design, construction works and specialist goods and services.


Amey said it would play a leading part in supporting Highways England develop this supply-chain community.


David Poole, director for commercial and procurement at Highways England, said: “The awarding of this new contract represents a significant milestone for Highways England, marking a real change in the way we have previously managed contracts.”


“Collaboration with our supply chain is key to our new way of working in the East Midlands and we are looking forward to establishing a successful, long-term relationship with the appointed contractors.”


Amey already manages and maintains the strategic network in the East of England in Areas 6 and 8 under the previous Asset Support Contract model.
