Tarmac has signed a two-year extension of its highways maintenance deal with Nottinghamshire County Council.
The firm’s initial five year, £60M deal is due to expire in April 2018 but has an option for further extensions.
Following successful delivery of a number of projects, the contract – which includes services such as gully cleaning and street lighting – has been extended to spring 2020.
Tarmac said its partnership with the county council had delivered more than £2M in annual cost savings.
Tarmac Contracting managing director Paul Fleetham said: “We’re delighted to have secured this extension to our contract with Nottinghamshire County Council. It is a real testament to the successful collaborative partnership with our colleagues at the council to maintain a first-rate road network while delivering significant annual cost savings, supporting the local economy by working with local supply chain partners, and securing jobs with the county.”
Nottinghamshire County Council contracts and programmes manager Martin Carnaffin added: “Our partnership with Tarmac has helped us to create a more resilient transport system and better roads by driving efficiencies and improvements.
“We have worked extensively to invest in our teams and resources to ensure that Nottinghamshire’s road infrastructure - which is vital to delivering ongoing economic growth - is managed and maintained to a high standard for road users, while delivering value for taxpayers.”
