Ringway is currently mobilising resources in preparation for the new Highway Service Term contract with Hertfordshire County Council which goes live on October 1.
The seven-year contract is estimated to be worth £35m in the first year and will cover all aspects of road and footway maintenance and improvement, street lighting and winter service.
Matt Kelley (pictured), Ringway Divisional Manager, said: “We are obviously delighted to have secured this prestigious contract with Hertfordshire County Council and believe our commitment to quality at Ringway will ensure that all the work we are responsible for will make a real difference to the county in the months and years to come.”
Vince Gilbert, Head of Highways at Hertfordshire County Council, added: “We are looking forward to working closely with Ringway. Having followed a rigorous tender process to achieve the very best value for Hertfordshire and to deliver a local service which meets the needs of local people, we believe we have chosen the right company for the job.”
In carrying out small repairs and routine maintenance to winter maintenance and larger construction projects, Ringway will be able to deploy its vast experience and range of services across Hertfordshire.
Subject to performance, the Hertfordshire contract may grow in size and scope throughout the contract period, encompassing additional schemes and major maintenance projects.
Awarded in March 2012, after an 18 month tender period which included an extensive period of competitive dialogue, the contract sees Ringway replacing the incumbent contractor, Amey Lafarge.
