Highways Agency Area 8 ASC to go out to tender

The Highways Agency has given advance notice of its plan to put out to tender its Area Support Contract for Area 8 at Bedford.

The contract value is estimated at between £32M and £42M a year and includes the road and bridges maintenance works, winter maintenance and delivery of road, structures/bridge and technology work with a value between £4M and £8M.

The first £400M Asset Support Contract (ASC) for Area 2 in south west England was awarded in February to an Atkins/Skanska joint venture. The next contract due to be awarded is the £500M Area 10 deal in the North West, and a decision is overdue.
