Fitzpatrick win Olympics highways contract

Fitzpatrick Contractors have won the contract to maintain and construct highways for the Olympic park, the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has announced.

ODA Chairman John Armitt said: "Fitzpatrick Contractors Ltd has a sound track record of developing successful relationships with suppliers and contractors, and is dedicated to providing a quality service and value for money.

"Health and safety and sustainability are integral in their organisation, and they will work hard to minimise the impact they have on the environment whilst maintaining good service. Their commitment to increasing local employment is evident, from the fact that 30% of their workforce are from neighbouring boroughs," he said.

The ODA hope the contract will help minimise congestion and improve efficiency across the site. Fitzpatrick will work with Mott MacDonald as their 'Key Supply Chain Partner' on all internal roads, entrance plazas and pedestrian footpaths.

A Fitzpatrick spokesman said: "Roads within and linking to the Olympic park are of major logistical importance and central to the construction and preparation for the 2012 Games."
