Kier wins £750m Highways England extensions


Kier has secured three-year extensions on its Highways England Areas 3 and 9 contracts, with a total value of £750m or £250m a year.

The contracts provide routine highway maintenance services, repairs to defects, emergency incident response services and severe weather services on the strategic road network.

The extensions help Highways England deliver a phased roll-out of its full asset delivery model, which it is committed to implementing across its entire network.

Area 9: This contract covers major roads in Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwckshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire as well as parts of Gloucestershire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. Kier has held the contract since 2014 and it has been extended to June 2022. Area 9 is the largest Area within Highways England's network.
