Highways England prepares for £580M Area 10 bids

Road at night

Highways England is holding a supplier’s day ahead of procurement for up to £580M of contracts in North West England.

The roads body published a prior information notice on the OJEU for its Area 10 Construction Works Framework covering Merseyside, Cheshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester. The £220M framework includes lots for general civil engineering works, drainage, structural services and expansion joints. There are 10 lots in total and up to two lots may be awarded to one tenderer.

Highways England is also tendering a Maintenance and Response contract worth £326M to provide routine and cyclic maintenance, incident response, defect retification and severe weather delivery, as well as traffic management during incidents. 

A design services contract worth up to £34M will also be put to tender, with the successful contractor expected to prepare technical designs and undertake support work on infrastructure projects from start to finish. 

In October last year a Balfour Beatty Mott MacDonald joint venture was awarded a £115M Asset Support Contract extension in the region which will run until March 2019. 

The suppliers event on 5 February will be held at Wigan’s DW stadium, and interested parties should confirm attendance via email by 19 January.
