Kier will now maintain technology assets across Highways England's Area 13 network, worth an extra £11m on top of its existing maintenance and response (M&R) contract for the region.
The firm has maintained the Area 13 network - located in the North West and covering Cumbria and North Lancashire - under the Managing Agent Contractor Contract for the last three years.
The technology element of the Area 13 contract will remain in place for the next 11 years and is worth £1m a year.
Four new technology engineers have joined the Area 13 maintenance contract team as part of the new deal.
Matt Smith, senior technology maintenance manager at Kier Highways said: 'Technology is a key element of keeping our network operational and safe, and I’m confident that the skills our new colleagues bring with them will help build on the successes we’ve achieved in the region to date.
'Integrating the technology asset will allow us to deliver a full turnkey solution in maintaining our network, as well as delivering efficiencies.'
The move follows the end of the North West Regional Technology Maintenance Contract and is part of Highways England’s drive to integrate technology maintenance into all normal M&R contracts for a more consistent approach to asset management.
Kier's Area 9 contract first trialled this new integrated model as part of Progressive Asset Delivery last year and its Area 4 contract will start the integration of technology maintenance into the M&R contract next year.
Dave Dickinson, Highways England’s regional change lead in the North West, said: 'The North West region was the first Highways England region to add roadside technology maintenance into the Asset Delivery operating model and M&R contracts, which will result in safety, efficiency and customer service benefits for our customers.
'I’d like to thank Kier Highways for the help in delivering a smooth transition and the knowledge learned through mobilising this change will now be used to make the same change in all other Highways England regions in the near future.'
