Highways Agency alerts contractors to new maintenance framework

The Highways Agency has given advance notice of its intention to invite expressions of interest for firms to join its Asset Support Framework which will award contracts for larger maintenance schemes and small improvement works across the trunk road and motorway network.

Contractors on the Asset Support Framework will deliver surfacing works, bridgeworks, technology related works, highway strengthening and improvement works and general roadworks between £5M and £15M in value that will not be delivered via contractors on other contracts such as the Agency’s revamped MAC contracts, now known as Asset Support Contracts. The overall estimated value of the frameworks will be revaled at contract notice stage.

The framework will be split geographically into two and will run for three years with the option to extend by up to a further 12 months. The expected start date is summer 2012.

ASF North will cover Highways Agency Maintenance Areas 7,9,10,12,13,14 (Midlands and North England) and the local authority networks wholly or partly in those areas and include the option to work on Agency DBFO routes. ASF South will cover Highways Agency Maintenance Areas 1,2,3,4,6 and 8 (East, South East and South West England), the local authority networks wholly or partly in those areas and include the option to work on Agency DBFO routes including the M25.
