Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has been awarded a place on the new Eastern Highways Alliance Framework, which covers 11 local highways authorities across the east of England.
The company is one of six contractors that will be selected to undertake road schemes valued at up to £20 million each within the framework, which is worth up to £750 million over four years. The framework will reduce the cost and time it takes for projects such as new roads, roundabouts and other infrastructure to be built.
Ian Renhard, Managing Director of Interserve’s construction business, said:
“This award highlights our strong track record in delivering complex road projects, which have helped develop and improve the country’s strategic road network. We look forward to working collaboratively with the Highways Agency, the Eastern Highways Alliance and our supply chain partners to deliver the exciting projects ahead.”
Cambridgeshire County Council’s highways and community infrastructure committee led the selection process on behalf of the 11 highways authorities, including Suffolk and Essex county councils.
Roger Hickford, chairman of the highways and community infrastructure committee of Cambridgeshire County Council, said:
“The first framework, which was set up in 2012, used four contractors to deliver schemes up to the value of £10 million. This framework made some significant savings for all the councils involved so the new framework, which is split between work up to £1.5 million and contracts valued from £1 million to £20 million, will save considerable funds and time for us all. It is innovative thinking and partnership working like this which demonstrates how local authorities are collaborating together in adapting to the challenges we face.”
