Tarmac wins £30M roads deal

Tarmac has won a £30M roads maintenance contract in the North West.

The contractor secured the five-year deal with Knowsley Council.

Starting on 1 February 2016, the contract will see Tarmac deliver highways surfacing, bridge and structures maintenance, gully cleaning and footway and carriageway repairs.

Tarmac Contracting managing director Paul Fleetham said:“We are delighted to have secured this contract, which is a reflection of our strong track record in delivering a high quality, innovative highways maintenance offer for local authorities across the UK.”

Knowsley cabinet member for regeneration and economic development Mike Murphy said: “Knowsley’s highway is one of the council’s most valuable assets so it is vital that we have the correct provision in place to ensure this is maintained.

“The new contract with Tarmac will deliver direct efficiencies for the council and will give us a more flexible approach to the service, which is critical to our continued success in the current financial climate. It will also positively support the local economy through employing local apprentices and using local sub-contractors.”
