The £11m contract – Amey’s first American highways contract – is for Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and is for an initial period of two years, with the potential to be extended for up to four years.
Amey’s chief executive, Mel Ewell said: “This win spearheads Amey’s growth in America and is part of our continued expansion overseas, complementing recent growth in the Middle East and Australia. We look forward to working with our sister company Webber and with the Texas Department of Transportation bringing UK best practice to manage and improve the road networks around Dallas.”
The TxDOT commission is a performance-based maintenance contract for the regional interstate network around the city of Dallas. It covers the interstate corridors forming a triangle between Dallas, San Antonio and Houston.
