CH2M, Colas and Costain joint venture A-one+ has been awarded a five-year highway maintenance contract.
Highways England has contracted the joint venture to undertake long-term maintenance on highways in Kent and Sussex.
The five-year contract is expected to be worth between £55M to £70M per year for a road network that connects Gatwick Airport, the Channel Tunnel, Dover and Folkestone.
“This new contract allows us to build upon our commitments to our customers in Kent and Sussex,” said Highways England divisional director for the south east Simon Jones.
“We want to ensure that safety remains our top priority, that we keep our network in a good, safe and reliable condition, and to put our customers at the heart of our work. I am looking forward to working with A-one+ in providing a first class service.”
A-one+ already carries out routine highway maintenance services, emergency incident response, severe weather services and renewal projects on roads in the two counties.
The contract includes the A21, M2, M20 in Kent and the A23, A27 and M23 in Sussex.
Work under the contract started on 17 June with Sussex Police and A-one+ working together to pump flood water off the A27.
