The new Dorset highways agreement starts on 1st April 2017 and has a potential duration of 10 years and a total value of more than £100m.

Hanson has worked as the main supply contractor for Dorset Highways since 2002, laying more than a million tonnes of asphalt and delivering projects including the Olympic transport package in Weymouth, Swanage recycling centre and most recently the A338 Bournemouth spur road upgrade.

Andrew Martin, Dorset’s service director for highways and emergency planning, said:

“We are delighted to be able to extend our partnership arrangements with Hanson into a third generation contract. We have worked successfully together for the last 15 years to deliver capital maintenance and highway improvement programme across the county.

“Hanson submitted a very attractive proposal in both price and quality and also put forward a number of exciting new initiatives which we are looking forward to developing and implementing as the contract progresses.”

Hanson Contracting’s major projects director Denis Curran said:  “We are very pleased to be awarded this new partnership contract and to extend our collaborative working arrangements with Dorset County Council. We look forward to delivering a high quality highways service.”
