Surrey shortlists five for £200M road maintenance contract

Surrey County Council has shortlisted five contractors for the £200M contract to manage its roads maintenance for up to the next ten years.

Ringway and Carillion’s hold the current contract, but this deal will end in April 2011. Five are in the frame to take the new contract, which will run for six years with an option to extend for a further four:

  • Balfour Beatty Workplace Ltd
  • Colas Limited
  • Enterprise Ltd
  • May Gurney Ltd
  • Skanska Infrastructure Services

Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport, Ian Lake, said: “The winner of the contract will take on a huge responsibility and we will only make a decision when we are certain we have the best people for the job.

“We will rigorously analyse their bids so the company that wins the contract will be more than able to live up to their promises,” he said.

Bidders must prove their ability to maintain Surrey’s roads, pathways and structures in addition to winter maintenance including road salting.
