Four contractors share £60m road maintenance programme

Highways England has awarded more than £60m of road maintenance work in the east of England, with much of it starting this month.

Four contractors – Interserve, VolkerFitzpatrick, Graham Construction and Osborne – are sharing the load, which was awarded via the collaborative delivery framework (CDF).

The work includes resurfacing, safety barrier and lighting upgrades, drainage maintenance and repairs, and new signs and road markings.

Larger elements include new noise barriers at eight locations along the M40 in Buckingham and South Oxfordshire, at a cost of £3.4m, and a £3.5m repairs to accident-damaged bridges on the A47 Saddlebow interchange at King’s Lynn. Both of these projects are being carried out by Graham Construction.
