Enterprise win Kent highways contract

Infrastructure support services firm Enterprise today announced it has been awarded the contract to provide £45M per annum worth of highways maintenance services to Kent County Council.

The range of services includes routine maintenance, winter services, emergency and out-of-hours response, drainage repairs, signs, lines, barrier and streetlighting maintenance, and highways surface treatment work. It will also include a range of highways improvement schemes.

The contract is set to begin on 1 September 2011 and run for five years, with the possibility of a five year extension, with a total value worth up to £450M.

Kent has one of the largest and busiest road networks in the country with over 8,000km of roads and the Council wanted a strong supply chain partner to work closely with its in-house teams to deliver value for money and efficient services. The award was made following a robust procurement process.

“We are committed to maintaining the network, improving road safety for all users and managing traffic flow to ease congestion,” Kent County Council member for environment, highways and waste Bryan Sweetland.

“We believe it is possible to provide an excellent service through challenging economic times and we have chosen a supply chain partner which sees this challenge as an opportunity to improve services for residents.”

“We have a dedicated highways team and a strong track record of delivering these services to local authorities up and down the country,” said Enterprise executive chairman Alan Peterson.
