Skanska will next week close a new highways maintenance deal with Hampshire County Council.
Skanska is the preferred bidder for the seven year contract, which starts in August. It will take over from Amey. The council has not confirmed the value of the contract.
“This new contract has been years in the planning. We’ve worked with councillors across all political parties, talked to other authorities, researched the market, and engaged with all potential suppliers to fully understand what they can offer Hampshire. I’m confident that our new contract is competitive, offers good value for money for Hampshire’s council taxpayers and can deliver the quality of work Hampshire’s residents expect and deserve,” said Hampshire County Council executive member for transport Cllr Rob Humby.
