The bid deadline for a £115M contract to provide highways maintenance and improvement services to two London boroughs has been extended.
Sutton Council and Kingston Council are seeking bids for the seven year contract to build, improve and maintain roads and paths, with the option of a three-year extension, which is split into four lots.
The local authorities indicated a preference for all the lots to be awarded to one bidder, but said separate contracts will be awarded if it is “more economically advantageous”.
There is a £20M lot for reactive and routine maintenance, ad-hoc highways works and emergency call-outs, and another, worth £20M, for street lighting routine and reactive maintenance.
A lot for planned maintenance of carriageways and footways is worth £25M and a £50M lot is up for tender for highways improvements works or new works, including civil engineering, major highways and transport improvement schemes.
The original deadline for bids has been extended from today to 8 January 2018.
