Stuart Proffitt, director of environment and property at Milton Keynes City Council, said: “We're very happy to be working with Ringway Infrastructure Services to deliver a new, innovative highways contract for MK residents. The authority undertook an extensive and rigorous tender process to ensure that we got the best provider for the city and Ringway met our key critical criteria for value, efficiency and quality."
