FM Conway has secured a £98m public realm and major highway contract from Richmond upon Thames and Wandsworth.
The contract began on 1 November 2019 and will run for seven years with the option to extend for a further three years to 2029.
The two boroughs are using a shared service contract with Fm Conway to deliver a range of highway and public realm improvements across the 3,600 streets of Richmond Upon Thames and Wandsworth.
James Tallon, term maintenance director at FM Conway, said: 'This contract win continues to demonstrate the strength of our term maintenance offer in the capital, which is underpinned by the skill and expertise of our great people delivering high-quality public realm and highways services. In addition to high-quality delivery, our role is to work alongside both councils’, on advanced road safety initiatives to ensure the wellbeing of the communities we work in.'
FM Conway has a longstanding relationship with both boroughs having successfully delivered public realm schemes in Richmond, including the highly regarded Twickenham town centre regeneration, as well as the refurbishment project at Putney Bridge, Wandsworth.
Aligning with the borough’s road safety strategy was also of 'paramount importance to securing the contract'.
In January 2017, CEO Michael Conway was awarded an MBE in acknowledgement of his contribution to road traffic safety and the business was one of the first in the UK to achieve certification to the world’s first international standard for Road Traffic Safety systems, ISO 39001.
Paul Chadwick, director of environment and community services for Richmond and Wandsworth councils said: 'FM Conway’s demonstrable experience in road safety coupled with their commitment to continual improvement and investment will help us to deliver our road safety strategy, with highway and public realm improvements that contribute to the communities in both Wandsworth and Richmond boroughs.'
