Liverpool City Council has begun searching for contractors to work on a highways framework valued at £280M.
The four-year framework will be split into three lots based on value and includes the £200M Highway Investment Project.
The three lots include projects ranging from £250,000 to £12M for highways work.
Each of the three lots cover a wide range of work, such as remedial works, repairs, structural maintenance, traffic management and road markings.
In total, 12 contracts will be award across all three lots, with up to 24 suppliers being invited to tender.
Bidders who are invited to tender “will be required to provide generic and lot specific technical method statements, questions on social value and lot specific schedules of rates and bills of quantities,” according to the works notice.
Interested parties must complete the selection questionnaire on the Pro Contract website by October 2017.
All councils within the Liverpool Combined Authority Boundary will have access to the framework.
