Mott MacDonald Grontmij wins place on Highways Agency framework

A joint venture between consultants Mott MacDonald and Grontmij has been appointed to two Highways Agency contracts worth up £145M this week.

The joint venture has been appointed to Lot 1 - Integrated Highway Engineering and Technology Design Consultancy - and to Lot 3, Commercial Support, for the Highways Agency’s four-year Project Support Framework (PSF).

These two key appointments allow the joint venture team to work directly with the Highways Agency on major projects to improve the capability of the strategic road network in England over the next four years. The potential total spend of the two lots over the framework period is up to £145M.

“We have been working closely with Grontmij since 2002 on a number of water frameworks, so it was natural for us to develop our tried and tested working relationship into transport in this way,” Mott MacDonald director of transportation Peter Carden.

The Project Support Framework is available for use nationally and can be used by government Departments and local government bodies.

“Grontmij has been working on managed motorway schemes, both internationally and in the UK, for a number of years,” said Grontmij managing director John Chubb.

“Following our successful work on the M1 scheme we relish the challenge of providing further innovative solutions to the Highways Agency to help reduce the cost of improving the strategic road network, and deliver their current 20 per cent and future business plan efficiency targets for major schemes.”
