Company secures two works packages across County Council’s new Highways Services Contract

FM Conway are to continue their partnership with West Sussex County Council having been awarded two works packages estimated at £8 million across the council’s new Highways Services Contract.

West Sussex County Council is continuing to invest in its highway’s infrastructure with an emphasis on local roads and footways across the county, supported by FM Conway who have been operating on the Highways Maintenance Contract since 2020.

 

The business has now been awarded Lot 4 for 2023 to build on its existing partnership with West Sussex to support these ambitions, as well as to drive new innovations and sustainable solutions which benefit the local communities, businesses, and all visitors to the county.

The new programme of works, which is due to start in April 2023 and runs for one year, will see FM Conway use their self-delivery expertise to focus on two works packages, which includes Resurfacing Principal and Local Roads, as well as Footway Reconstruction and Small Works, across a total of 105 sites in West Sussex.

The business has been selected, in part, for its commitment to delivering innovation through recycled materials to achieve net-zero carbon working practices. FM Conway are already well established in the region thanks to their highly advanced Newhaven asphalt plant and privately-owned HGV fleet, both of which ensure surety of supply, and a focus on materials recycling across their local operations.

Having recently delivering planned carriageway and footway resurfacing packages for West Sussex County Council in 2022, FM Conway say this latest contract award will enhance their growing network in the south-east of England and build upon their existing relationship within the county.

Paul Padfield, surfacing director at FM Conway, said: ‘We are excited to continue our relationship with West Sussex and place a keen focus on the circular economy through our use of high-percentage recycled aggregate and single-layer solutions.

‘Our drive for new innovations and sustainable working practices means we can work together with West Sussex to introduce greater efficiencies and, more importantly, reduce carbon emissions and network disruption across the county.’

Matt Davey, assistant director for highways at West Sussex County Council, said: ‘We are pleased to be continuing to work with FM Conway as we continue to invest in the county’s highways and footways, providing a safe and durable travel network for residents and visitors alike.

‘FM Conway’s commitment to achieving net-zero carbon working practices aligns with the County Council’s own overarching commitment to tackling climate change through the work we do.’
