Ontario picks Carillion for £100m highways deal

18 Sep 13 Carillion has been named preferred bidder for a 12-year Canadian highways maintenance contract expected to be worth over £100m.

Carillion Canada has been selected by the Ministry of Transportation Ontario for the Peel and Halton area maintenance contract (AMC) in Ontario. It will provide routine inspection and maintenance services, including snow clearance, together with minor capital works, for over 1,000km of two-lane equivalent highway. 

A Carillion joint venture was the incumbent maintenance contractor for the Halton area, which has been combined with the Peel area under this new and extended AMC.       

Carillion chief executive Richard Howson, said: ''This latest success reinforces Carillion's position as the leading private sector provider of highways maintenance services in Ontario.  Over the last eighteen months, we have won long-term highways maintenance contracts in Ontario and Alberta worth over £720 million, which is making a significant contribution to organic growth in our support services activities in Canada."
