Chevron has been awarded a five-year contract to provide traffic management services on the Highways Agency Area 9 asset support contract (ASC).
EM Highway Services will be taking over from Amey, the current service provider in Area 9 MAC. This contract has been secured following EM Highway Services appointment under the new ASC contract, commencing on July 2014.
Chevron managing director Kim Yates said: “We are delighted to be given the opportunity to further our existing collaborative relationship with EM Highways under the new Area 9 ASC. This award allows us to build upon the success we have had on the Area 9 construction management framework and develop a permanent operating presence within the Area.”
The Area 9 contract will benefit from the continuation of the BS11000 collaborative partnership success seen on the previous contract between EM Highway Services, Chevron Traffic Management and other key supply chain partners throughout the Area 3 MAC and continuing with the recently re- appointed Area 3 ASC.
Highways Agency Area 9 covers major roads in much of Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire, as well as parts of Gloucestershire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. It also includes the seven metropolitan boroughs of Wolverhampton, Walsall, Sandwell, Dudley, Solihull, Coventry and the City of Birmingham. The roads covered by the contract are sections of the M50, M5, M6, M42, M40, A5, A38, A46, A49, A38 (M), M54 and M69.
