Balfour Beatty bags £245M roads deal


Balfour Beatty has won a £245M roads maintenance deal in the west Midlands.

The firm secured the seven-year contract to look after roads for Warwickshire County Council, Coventry City Council and Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council.

The deal – which could be extended to last a decade – will see a 120-strong workforce including 30 apprenticeships and 10 graduate placements deliver a range of services on more than 5,000km of highway. 

Warwickshire County Councillor Peter Butlin said: “By approving a highways contract as a three-way partnership, we are able to provide improved value for money to the taxpayer as well as better service resilience and flexibility.

“As neighbours, it makes perfect logic for Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull to link up and provide a more efficient service through cooperative working.”

Balfour Beatty chief executive Leo Quinn said “With a clear focus on the outcomes that matter to communities, we are helping local authorities to deliver better value for money.”

The deal comes after Balfour secured a £55M extension to a roads deal in West Sussex last week.
