Nine on 'flexible' Barnet highways framework

Chris Ames

Barnet Council has appointed nine contractors to a new four-year highway maintenance framework worth around £75m.

The council said the framework will be used for works covering both carriageway and footway maintenance, drainage, signs and markings, and traffic safety and provides delivery resilience, giving it compliant access to the market on a flexible, no guarantee of call-off basis.

The Framework Agreements began in June for four years, with the option to extend for a further two years.

Alan Schneiderman, cabinet member for environment and climate change, said: ‘Well-maintained roads and pavements are safer for everyone. That’s why we have agreed to invest an additional £8m in our highways over the next two years.

‘We’re delighted to have agreed the Highways Maintenance Works Framework Agreement as part of our commitment to maintaining the quality of our roads and footways and tackling potholes and other issues for our residents.’

The firms appointed to each lot are:

Lot 1: Traffic Safety & Management

  • Clancy Plant
  • Volker Highways

Lot 4: Drainage – Installation & Replacement

  • O’Hara Bros Surfacing Ltd
  • T Loughman & Co Ltd

Lot 5: Road Pavement – Carriageway Construction

  • Marlborough Highways Limited
  • O’Hara Bros Surfacing

Lot 6: Road Pavement – Condition Surveys

  • Pavement Testing Services Ltd (PTS)

Lot 7: Kerbs, Footways, Cycleways and Paved Areas

  • Loughlin Civil Engineering Limited
  • Marlborough Highways Limited

Lot 8: Traffic Signs – Permanent Traffic Signs

  • J McCann and Co Limited

Lot 9: Traffic Signs – Road Studs and Markings

  • WJ South Ltd

J McCann managing director John McCann said: ‘We’re proud to have been selected as one of nine strategic partners who have been trusted with delivering on Barnet Council’s vision, and we look forward to collaborating across a wide range of projects over the next four years.’

Marlborough MD Matthew Revell said: ’We are grateful to the Council for putting their trust in Marlborough, with our team passionately committed to delivering for the people of Barnet.

‘Our commitment to community and sustainability aligns perfectly with the Council’s vision, and we look forward to effecting positive change together.’

Gary Moore, traffic management director at Clancy, said: ‘Clancy has been investing significantly in our fleet of the latest traffic management plant and equipment.

‘We’re pleased to have the opportunity to work with Barnet Council to bring to bear this investment and our long-standing expertise in managing traffic for clients across the UK, keeping road users moving smoothly and safely around maintenance works.’

When the contract was advertised in October last year, it was divided into 10 lots worth between £600,000 and £30M, and totalling nearly £75m, with Lot 5 Road Pavement – Carriageway Construction easily the highest value lot.

However, the council has not announced successful bidders for all lots.

In April 2021 Barnet appointed a Tarmac Kier joint venture to a highways maintenance and improvements contract valued at, which was due to run from years until September 2023.
