National Highways has named Colas as it partner contractor to maintain roads across the West Midlands area 9 highways region.

The contract worth £328m over eight years will start this July. Colas will carry out routine maintenance and repairs, respond to emergency incidents and severe weather services on some of the region’s busiest routes, including the M6, M42 and M54.
