Halcrow, Costain and Colas scoop £220M Highways Agency East Midlands maintenance deal

The Highways Agency has today awarded its £220M Managing Agent Contractor Area 7 deal to the A-One+ consortium of Halcrow, Costain and Colas.

Under the five year contract, A-One+ will carry out a range of operational and routine maintenance services and deliver improvements on the motorways and trunk roads in the East Midlands.
This covers the motorways and trunk roads in the counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland.

The new contract will bring together a network currently covered by three separate contracts to match the boundaries of the Government Office for the East Midlands region as well as the Highway Agency's East Midlands Regional Control Centre coverage.

The contract will include new Incident Support vehicles. These larger vehicles will provide faster delivery of traffic management cones and signs to incidents and provide impact protection to the incident scene.

The new arrangements will come into effect from 1 July 2009.
