Road firms readied for £300m Wiltshire highways upkeep



Wiltshire Council has put firms on alert for a fresh bid contest to deliver up to £300m worth of highways maintenance over the next five to ten years. Present delivery contractor Ringway was drafted in to maintain the highways network for five years after a bust-up between Balfour Beatty Living and the council in 2016.

Ahead of starting the bid contest in April next year, Wiltshire Council is planning a suppliers engagement day at the end of this month to discuss options for re-tendering of the Term Highways Maintenance Service contract to start on 1st April 2023.

Current average annual spend through the contract is £15m, with potential for this to increase with additional capital funding.

The contract will be for the provision of a highways maintenance service to undertake a programme of maintenance and improvements of the highways and roads network or other council land in Wiltshire and associated infrastructure.

The successful contractor will be expected to work alongside the authority to help it achieve its commitment to becoming carbon natural by 2030.
