Contractor Amey has won its second Asset Support Contract (ASC) deal with the Highways Agency worth £200M over five years.
It is the second ASC win for Amey, adding to the ASC 6 contract award last month covering Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk and will begin on 1 April next year.
The previous four ASCs awarded went to Amey, Atkins/Skanska (now Skanska alone), Balfour Beatty/Mott MacDonald and EnterpriseMouchel.
Under the five year deal, with options to extend, Amey will carry out maintenance, renewal and improvement services on more than 800km of carriageway on major roads of its Area 8 around towns and cities such as Milton Keynes, Luton and Stevenage – a road network that include sections of the M1, M11, the A5 and the A1(M).
“This contract award is good news. It incentivises our supply chain to deliver results for road users, and will achieve significant cost savings too,” said the Agency’s East region acting divisional director Catherine Brookes.
“More than 90% of the Agency’s expenditure is delivered through contractors and that is why we need to work with an efficient, effective and professional supply chain to drive down costs and deliver the highest quality service. I am confident that this new contract will do just that.”
