Buckinghamshire Council announces new highways contractors

Press Release from Buckinghamshire Council

Buckinghamshire Council has today announced the 12 approved contractors who will be working on highways, maintenance and infrastructure projects within the county from 1 April 2023.

The announcement completes all elements of the transition of the council’s highways and maintenance contract work to new partners, as part of a planned move as the contract with current partner, Ringway Jacobs, comes to a close at the end of this month.

Last year Balfour Beatty Living Places (BBLP) were awarded the council’s Term Maintenance Contract and the Term Consultancy Contract was awarded to Atkins, starting from 1 April 2023. The 12 newly-appointed contractors will work alongside BBLP and Atkins to carry out the works needed, under new Framework 1 and Framework 2 contracts which will run for a period of four years.

The 12 contractors have been appointed following a procurement process and will operate as follows:

Buckinghamshire Highways Framework One – Minor Works

Lot 1: Conventional Surfacing Work

  • Balfour Beatty Living Places Limited
  • Eurovia Infrastructure Limited
  • O’Hara Bros Surfacing Limited

Lot 2: Surface Treatments including Surface Dressing

  • Colas Limited
  • Eurovia Infrastructure Limited
  • Kier Highways Limited

Lot 3: Minor Works (under £500K)

  • Balfour Beatty Living Places Limited
  • J McCann and Co Limited
  • O’Hara Bros Surfacing Limited  

Buckinghamshire Highways Framework Two – Major Works (over £500K)

  • Balfour Beatty Living Places Limited
  • Keltbray Highways Limited
  • Tilbury Douglas Construction Limited

The frameworks have been set up in this way to deliver value for money and to allow the council to align delivery of highways and regeneration infrastructure projects under a new delivery model. The new model will mean other council services such as Flooding and Development, Transport Strategy and Rights of Way teams can benefit from the wide range of expertise and experience provided by the range of contractors.

Steven Broadbent, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport said: “This is the final piece in the jigsaw for the council in terms of setting up our new way of working from 1 April. By structuring our contracts in this way, it allows us to consolidate a range of different suppliers under a single framework and gives us the ability to generate value for money and additionally more options to embrace new technologies and innovations which is fantastic news.”
