Peterborough launches £15M transport and engineering deal

Peterborough City Council has launched a single transport and engineering contract worth up to £15M.

The East Midlands local authority will bring road maintenance, street lighting, gulley cleansing and technical support under one deal from 1 August 2013.

Four contractors currently provide the services to the council but the move to a single contract is aimed at saving £500,000.

Councillor Peter Hiller said: “At a time when we are receiving less money from the government to run services we need to make sure every penny we spend is providing good value for money.”

Ringway currently provides highways maintenance to Peterborough; Volker Mews street lighting; ADC gulley cleansing; and Atkins technical services.

Companies interested in the new deal have until Thursday 8 November to register their interest with the council.
