Lincolnshire County Council is seeking contractors for highway maintenance work that could be worth £762m over 12 years.

The council has published a prior information notice (PIN) stating that it is undertaking a procurement exercise for the provision of a highway maintenance contract to replace the current Lincolnshire Highways Alliance, which is due to expire in March 2020.

The procurement consists of three lots: Highway Works, Traffic Signals, and Design Services.

The PIN states that it is anticipated that the contract term for each lot will be six years starting from 1 April 2020, with the opportunity to extend the contract for an additional six years to a maximum term of 12 years.

The council plans to hold a Meet the Buyer Day in Lincoln on 18 May and is asking interested parties to register interest. To book your place, e-mail Highways2020@lincolnshire.gov.uk.
