A Tarmac Kier joint venture (JV) has won a £25m highways maintenance and improvements contract with the London Borough of Barnet.
The new contract will run from April 2021 for two and half years until September 2023.
It was awarded through Transport for London’s (TfL) pan-capital Highways Maintenance and Projects Framework, which replaces the old London Highways Alliance Contract (LoHAC) arrangements.
The framework divides London into three regions, with the Tarmac Kier JV covering the enlarged North section equal to around 189km network of TfL roads.
Barnet is the first London Borough contract that the JV has secured through the framework.
All 13 London Boroughs in the area also have the option to directly access services through the framework.
Peter Hyde, highways services director, at Tarmac said: 'The award of this contract reflects our JV’s ability to work collaboratively with councils to deliver safe and sustainable maintenance and enhancements to critical highways networks across the capital.
'We’re looking forward to getting started and delivering a cost-effective, first-class service for Barnet and TfL that will help to cut congestion and increasingly support sustainable travel.'
Geoff Mee, Barnet Council’s executive director of environment, said: 'We’re making significant investments in maintaining and improving our highways, ensuring that Barnet’s commuters and all road users continue to benefit from a first-rate network.
'Contracting the Tarmac Kier JV is a cost-efficient way for us to deliver great value-for-money for our residents, while providing a high standard of service.'
Tarmac Kier is a 50-50 JV and the contract covers the delivery of highways maintenance and improvement services, including all reactive and planned pavement resurfacing schemes, as well as professional services.
