Highway term service company Ringway has secured the Highways England South West Area Maintenance and Response Contract.
It will start on 1 July 2017, and run for 15 years. The contract is worth between £15 and £30million per year.
The South West M&R Contract is for the maintenance of 1,695km of strategic road network within Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Ringway, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Eurovia UK, will undertake all aspects of cyclic maintenance, reactive maintenance, incident response, severe weather response and associated traffic management across the South West’s major road network.
Scott Wardrop, Chief Executive, said, “This is fantastic news for Ringway and is a major step forward towards our aim of becoming a significant and strategic supplier to Highways England as they continue to roll out their new Asset Delivery procurement model. I want to thank all our team, led by Mike Notman our Term Services Managing Director, for their hard work in securing this new Contract for Ringway becoming one of the successful long term Tier 1 suppliers for Highways England.
"We look forward to the start of the contract in July and working in collaboration with Highways England to maintain and improve the strategic road network. We believe our experience in operating and maintaining over 60,000km, of both Strategic and Local Authority networks across the United Kingdom, has helped us to secure this important new commission for Highways England in the South West.”
