Contract for Hertfordshire road repairs awarded

A company has been awarded a contract potentially worth £420m to maintain and repair Hertfordshire’s roads.

Hertfordshire County Council has chosen Ringway Infrastructure Services Ltd as the preferred bidder for a £35m-a-year highway works contract.

The seven-to twelve-year contract is one of a series being let by the council to replace its long-term highways partnership contracts with Amey Lafarge JV and Mouchel, which expire at the end of September.

Stuart Pile, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, said: "The end of the existing contracts has given us an opportunity to rethink how we structure the highways service and we’re making some significant changes.

"The Hertfordshire Highways contracts were recognised as innovative when they were set up ten years ago. However, the industry has moved on and - if we’re going to provide the best service possible for our residents - so must we."

The contract is for all repairs and work needed to the county’s roads network and may also include work to pavements and drainage as well as transport safety scheme.

Happy days. Now, let's hope that the improvements in the contract give us a better service from the next lot.

I hope this company might actually get the potholes repaired first time correctly rather than endless costly badly done temporary repairs.

Won't hold my breath though!

Does that mean Stanmore 'Quality' Surfaces are off the scene?

I hope not, they seem to be the ones that actually seem do a good job as opposed to the Herts Highway cowboys in their green transit tippers just spot fixing everything badly.
