Amey win Hampshire term highways contract

Hampshire County Council has awarded its new term highways contract to Amey, for highway maintenance services for all county roads on behalf of the County Council from 1 May.

Amey won the contract against stiff competition from five other contractors, and the clients hope it Amey will improve communications, performance and efficiency.

Amey will be represented by Kunle Kolaru, as General Manager, leading the day-to-day activities across Hampshire.

The Hampshire's Executive Member for Environment, Cllr Mel Kendal, said: "We anticipate that the new contract will offer opportunities for a range of service improvements and efficiencies, and we’re looking forward to developing a strong and productive working relationship with Amey."

Amey's Chief Operating Officer, Chris Webster said, "Amey is excited to have the opportunity to deliver highway maintenance services on behalf of Hampshire County Council. We are committed to working with the County Council to provide a first class, sustainable and value for money service which will contribute towards making the county a better place in which to live, work and invest."

The contract runs until 2015, with an option to extend it until 2018, subject to ongoing performance and continuous improvement. It replaces the current six year contract with Balfour Beatty Infrastructure Services Limited, which comes to an end on 30 April 2008.
