Contest for £500M of Midlands civils work opens

NCE stock roads

A £500M civils framework has been put to market.

The Midlands Highway Alliance advertised its Medium Schemes 3 framework in the European Union’s Official Journal.

The alliance comprises 20 local authorities spread between Doncaster and Buckinghamshire. It may be about to merge with the Midlands Service Group, which includes eight more councils.

Projects are expected to cover maintenance and road improvements; bridges and subways; town centre improvements; waste management facilities and other works.

Contractors have until 24 November to register an interest in the framework.

A maximum of four firms are expected to win work on the panel.

Under the current Medium Schemes 2 framework, which will expire next summer, projects worth more than £5M are carried out by Balfour Beatty, Galliford Try/Aggregate Industries or Lafarge Tarmac/Carillion.
