Highways England is seeking bids for a five-year £25M design services contract in the East Midlands.
Worth £5M to £10M per year, the work will involve preparing technical designs and support work for capital projects from initial scheme feasibility through to the end of construction.
The contract will start from 1 April next year, with work starting on 1 July. One supplier will be appointed for the East Midlands region, also known as Area 7.
“The changes we are making in Area 7 really demonstrate Highways England’s commitment to delivering a different approach to maintenance and investment delivery over the next five years,” said Highways England director for commercial and procurement David Poole.
“The design services tender is the third to be released under these new arrangements, and we are delighted to be making real progress towards our new way of working.”
