Bidding starts for £500m Dorset highways deal
Dorset County Council is advertising a five-year highways contract worth up to £500m.
The Dorset highways works term service contract will provide ‘top up’ services for the council’s in-house highways works service. The procurement documents set out a partnership arrangement by which work is divided between the contractor and the council's own highways team.
The estimated value of the contract is in the range from £100m to £500m during the five-year term. This is based on the minimum of forecast budget to be allocated by the council and potential grant funding that could be secured.
In previous years the allocated budget spent on this type of contract has only been between £10m and £15m but the spending has been increased by grant funding gained from central government schemes and the Dorset local enterprise partnership (DLEP).
