Carillion scoops £126M Managed Motorways scheme

Contractor Carillion has been awarded a £126.4M Managed Motorways scheme on the M6 around Birmingham.

The Highways Agency has awarded the project between junctions 5 and 8 to Carillion after the contractor offered a £49M saving on the Agency’s previous cost estimate for the works.

Advanced works are due to start from the end of next month with main construction due to get underway between April and June 2012, subject to completion of a statutory process.

Carillion was selected from four delivery partners that were awarded the Managed Motorway national framework contract in February 2010. It beat off bids from the three other partners Balfour Beatty, Bam Nuttall /Morgan Sindall and Costain/Serco.

The value of the contract awarded to Carillion is £104.9M and the estimated outturn cost of the project is £126.4M. This comprises construction costs at £105.5M - including an allowance for project and programme risk - and development costs.
