Central Bedfordshire Council has awarded Ringway Jacobs a seven-year highways maintenance contract.
The decision to award the contract to Ringway Jacobs was confirmed at a council Executive Meeting on 4 August following a rigorous procurement exercise. The new contract will allow the council to have greater control and influence of what happens on its highways network.
It is based upon the standard contract documentation developed as part of the Highways Maintenance Efficiency Programme which is a sector led initiative designed to maximise returns from investment in highways maintenance services.
Cllr Brian Spurr, executive member for community services, said: “We are all looking forward to working with Ringway Jacobs and the new contract ties in with the council’s priorities, with flexibility incorporated for a changing environment.”
Mike Notman, managing director of Ringway Jacobs, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious contract with Central Bedfordshire Council and are committed to establishing a productive relationship based upon trust, integrity and partnership.
“Our experience and collaborative approach means we will work closely alongside the council to develop an efficient and effective highways service required to meet the residents’ needs.”
