£60M highways contract win for Tarmac

Nottinghamshire County Council has awarded materials firm Tarmac a £60M highways contract.

The council hopes that the five year contract will allow it to save over £2M. This will be reinvested into improvements in the road network.

The firm will provide maintenance services such as gulley cleaning, street lighting, road marking and earthworks.

“I am particularly pleased that under 90% of the work will be carried out using the local workforce and suppliers and that it will allow some £2M to be reinvested back into our highways network, “ said the council’s highways and transport committee chairman Richard Jackson.

The contract will run from 1 April 2013 until 31 March 2018. There is an option to extend it for another five years.
