A 50-50 joint venture between Tarmac and Kier has been awarded a contract on Lot 2 of the Transport for London (TfL) Highways Maintenance and Project Framework to maintain and improve highways and related assets covering a 189km network in north London.
The framework will run for eight years, with the potential for an additional four-year extension. Mobilization is due to commence this month and the contract, which can be accessed by TfL, London boroughs and other TfL group companies, is scheduled to start in April 2021.
Paul Fleetham, managing director of Tarmac Contracting, said: ‘We are proud to have been given the opportunity to work collaboratively with TfL and our partner Kier to deliver a safe and sustainable network in north London.
‘A key strategic focus will be working efficiently to minimize disruption to residents and the travelling public, while supporting TfL’s Healthy Streets and Vision Zero initiatives. By leveraging our collective knowledge, expertise and network of materials plants, the Tarmac-Kier JV offers an exciting integrated partnership to meet London’s highways challenge.’
Joe Incutti, group managing director for Kier Highways, added: ‘We are delighted to have been awarded this contract. Kier are proud to have worked with TfL to provide safe and sustainable journeys for people walking, cycling and travelling on London’s roads users since 2007, and we are looking forward to continuing to do so alongside our partner Tarmac.’
