Kier kicks off South West roads contracts haul

Balfour Beatty roads go sign

Kier Highways has won a £40M Highway England contract covering roads design in south west England.

The deal is the first of a raft in the region set to be announced by Highways England. It is one of the new asset delivery contracts where Highways England will manage routine maintenance and capital renewal and improvement schemes directly to improve efficiency and cut costs.

A maintenance and response contract will be awarded next month and suppliers for a construction works framework will be appointed in April.

It follows major awards in Cumbria and North Lancashire, and the North East of England.

“We are delighted that Kier Highways Limited will be part of our new Asset Delivery supply chain community across the South West,” said Highways England executive director for commercial and procurement David Poole.

“This contract not only builds on the new way of working already taking place in the East Midlands and North of England but also demonstrates our ongoing commitment to increasing Highways England’s capability and control over the whole road network.”

The five year contract starts in July.
