Skanska wins £210m highways deal
Hampshire County Council has awarded Skanska a seven-year highway maintenance contract worth £30m a year.
Skanska takes over Hampshire’s 9,000km of highways on 1st August 2017, until August 2024. There is an option to extend for a further five years, based on performance.
Skanska operations director Simon White, for Skanska, said: “We will bring innovative and cost-effective solutions to help maintain and improve roads across the county.”
Hampshire county councillor Rob Humby, executive member for environment and transport, said: “This new contract has been years in the planning. We’ve worked with councillors across all political parties, talked to other authorities, researched the market, and engaged with all potential suppliers to fully understand what they can offer Hampshire. I’m confident that our new contract is competitive, offers good value for money for Hampshire’s council taxpayers and can deliver the quality of work Hampshire’s residents expect and deserve. We are all very much looking forward to working with Skanska.”
Hampshire’s highways were previously maintained by Amey, under a £325m a year contract.
Skanska also recently signed a seven-year highways maintenance deal with Somerset County Council.
