Wiltshire Council awards new highways contract

I believe this deal is the best one possible for the people of Wiltshire

Philip Whitehead

Wiltshire Council has awarded its highways maintenance contract from April 2016 to Ringway Infrastructure Services Limited.

The contract, which is worth £15m per year, will mean the company is responsible for the maintenance of roads, street lights and pavements, clearing drains, gritting roads and emergency repairs. It runs for five years, with a possible extension of a further two years.

Philip Whitehead, cabinet member for highways, said: "I am delighted we have been able to award the contract to a partner we have had such a successful working relationship with in the past."

"I believe this deal is the best one possible for the people of Wiltshire in terms of value for money, but most importantly quality."

The contractor, which ran the contract in Wiltshire between 1999 and 2013, was appointed following a thorough tendering exercise which saw four companies assessed in terms of price and quality.

It was agreed that the previous contract with Balfour Beatty Living Places would be terminated early by mutual agreement.
