Highways Reporters

Lafarge Tarmac has secured a highways contract with Norfolk County Council worth up to £480 million.

Valued at up to £40 million per annum, the contract will run for 10 years, with an option for a two-year extension. Lafarge Tarmac will commence work for Norfolk in April 2014.

The deal will see the company deliver highway surfacing, bridge and structures maintenance, gully cleansing, grass cutting, patching, surface dressing, and integrated transport schemes across the county.

The company already has extensive infrastructure within Norfolk which includes over 10 asphalt plants, railheads and quarries.

The contract win follows Lafarge Tarmac’s recent contract awards from Halton and Warrington Borough Councils, and Nottinghamshire County Council. The company will use its experience of working on strategic contracts with local authorities across the UK to deliver innovation, improvements and value for Norfolk’s road network.

Paul Fleetham, managing director of Lafarge Tarmac Contracting, said: “We have a strong presence in the region, supporting local jobs and local industry; and we’re looking forward to partnering with the teams at Norfolk to deliver highways excellence for all of the county’s road users.”

David Harrison, cabinet member for environment, transport, development and waste at Norfolk County Council, added: "The award of the contract follows an extremely competitive bidding process that resulted in three good bids. It was Lafarge Tarmac's ability to drive down costs while ensuring consistently high quality that won the day. The contract has the potential to save Norfolk's taxpayers up to £4.4m a year, and the use of modern techniques and commitment to innovation that will ensure value for money at a time when road budgets are under great pressure.”
