Mouchel Consulting has secured a contract extension to its highways and transportation professional services contract with Leeds City Council.
Mouchel, which was recently acquired by WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, has worked with the council since 2003. The new extension ensures that the relationship will continue until August 2018, the contract’s maximum length.
Mouchel’s Leeds team supports the council in the delivery of a range of schemes such as its city centre strategy, Leeds Bradford Airport and the East Leeds orbital road. The firm’s most recent completed project for Leeds City Council was the Cycle Superhighway from East Leeds to Bradford Centre.
“Having worked on this contract for 13 years, our team has built a strong relationship with Leeds City Council and we’re pleased that this, alongside our commitment to service quality, has been recognised with a further extension to our contract. We’re looking forward to continuing our work to help the council deliver excellence to the people of Leeds,” said Leeds/Mouchel partnership director James Woodhead.
Leeds City Council chief highways officer Gary Bartlett added: “We are delighted to extend the current contract to 31 August 2018. We currently have a very full programme of works from major new transport schemes through to an extensive maintenance programme related to our existing infrastructure.”
