Five contractors win places on £250M Midlands Highways Alliance framework

Five contractors have been awarded places on an expanded Midland Highways Alliance (MHA) framework contract estimated to be worth at least £250M over the next four years.

The framework has been split into two lots. Balfour Beatty, Eurovia, Galliford Try, Aggregate Industries and a joint venture between Lafarge Tarmac and Carillion will deliver schemes up to £5M. Balfour Beatty, Galliford Try and Lafarge Tarmac/Carillion will also get a share of projects valued at between £5M and £25M.

The MHA is formed of 20 local authorities and the Highways Agency. This is the second framework from the alliance, the first began in 2010.

“The previous contract proved itself to be an excellent example of collaboration between local councils across the Midlands and beyond delivering around £250M of projects and saving an estimated £15M,” said MHA chair Phil Crossland. “The main aim of the MHA from the very start has been to enable our members to quickly access standardised, high-quality, professional services for their road construction schemes.”

The new framework will run from April 2014 to March 2017 or 2018.
