Company retains highways maintenance service contract with Worcestershire County Council
RINGWAY, the infrastructure services providers, have retained their highways maintenance service contract with Worcestershire County Council, estimated to be worth between £20–30 million a year.
Ringway Worcester, working on behalf of Worcestershire Highways, have been operating the current highways and vehicle maintenance contract since 2005.
The new combined highways maintenance service contract will see Ringway delivering highways maintenance for the county’s 4,061km of roads, 3,250km of footways, 1,330 bridges and structures, 105,150 drainage gullies, as well as road signs, road markings, cyclical maintenance and winter service delivery.
In addition, Ringway, part of the Eurovia Group, will manage and maintain the council’s fleet of vehicles.
The new contract will officially begin in April 2014 and will run for an initial term of six-and-a-half years. During the contract period, Ringway will have the opportunity to be issued with additional years of tenure (up to a maximum six years) by maintaining performance at predetermined levels.
Over the years, Ringway have forged close working relationships with the Council, leading to the implementation of a number of service level agreements and resulting in considerable costs savings for the Council.
Ringway Worcester divisional manager Dave Rowley said: ‘We are obviously delighted to have retained this prestigious contract and are looking forward to continuing to deliver a first-class highways service to the Council and residents alike.’
