Balfour Beatty wins £200M Suffolk highways job

Suffolk County Council has named contractor Balfour Beatty as preferred bidder for a £200M contract to maintain its highways.

The five year contract, which may be extended to ten years, will make Balfour Beatty Living Places responsible for highway maintenance and improvement, winter gritting, street lighting, traffic signals and bridge works.

Balfour Beatty hopes it will make savings of £2M in 2013-14, as well as improving both the county’s environmental performance and the availability of information about work on the highway, if selected for the job.

If the contract is awarded, approximately 200 Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Borough Council staff will be transferred to Balfour Beatty under transfer of undertakings (Tupe) rules.
