Through the framework the council hopes to aims to reduce traffic, improve journey times and increase access while reducing carbon emissions.

“We are committed to delivering a connected county with excellent transport,” said Staffordshire cabinet member for highways and transport Mike Maryon.

Atkins will work under the framework until 2015.
