Balfour Beatty, Galliford Try, Morgan Sindall and Eurovia have all won places on a major highways framework in the Midlands.
The four companies will be working on the four-year Midlands Highway Alliance MSF3 framework, beating two other bidders to the contracts.
Works include highway improvements, maintenance, and infrastructure works to bridges, subways, culverts and retaining walls.
Public realm works (town centre enhancements), drainage improvements, canal works and other infrastructure projects such as waste management facilities are also included in the framework.
The overall value of works will be between £160M and £500M.
The alliance encompasses 21 local authorities in the Midlands. Leicestershire County Council acts as the host authority for the alliance, providing financial management support, communications support.
MSF3 Steering Group chair Mark Kemp said: “We received high quality submissions from all the contractors, which, together with increased levels of investment by local authorities, will drive further successful delivery of infrastructure projects across the region.”
A spokesperson for the alliance added: “We have a common aim which is to work together to improve performance, share best practice and make efficiency savings in the delivery of highway services.
“Over the last seven years we estimate our activities, in developing collaborative frameworks, have saved our member authorities an estimated £4million a year.”
