Amey is to take over the maintenance of highways in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead from Balfour Beatty after promising a 15% saving.
The council has approved the appointment of Amey to provide highways and bridge works, including winter service, for a period of two years with the option to extend for a further year subject to satisfactory performance.
In addition the council has let contracts to Eurovia Infrastructure for road resurfacing, Bellstan for road markings,HMS Decorative Surfacing for high friction surfacing and May Gurney for road signs. The new contracts replace the council’s existing contract with Balfour Beatty which comes to an end on 1 June.
“The largest contract with Amey has resulted in a saving of 15% on the current contract which represents more than £200,000 over two years - while continuing to fulfil our commitment to deliver good quality, cost effective services for our residents,” said cabinet member for highways, transport and environment Phill Bicknell.
“All of these new contracts will provide better value for our residents,” he said.
