Ringway has successfully renewed its highways contract with Bracknell Forest Council for maintaining and improving the borough’s roads.
The new revised contract, worth £8-9 million annually, includes all aspects of the highway service carried out successfully by Ringway since 2004 except for street cleansing. In addition, Ringway will take over responsibility for the maintenance of street lighting and electrical apparatus.
The new contract which started on 1 October 2014 will run for an initial term of seven years, with a possible further seven years of contract extensions based on performance.
Ringway regional director Nick Goddard said: “We are delighted to be able to continue working in Bracknell Forest. We are very much looking forward to building on our achievements so far and to deliver a first class highways and street lighting service to the residents of Bracknell Forest.”
Steve Loudoun, Bracknell Forest Council’s chief officer: environment and public protection, added: “It’s great to think that we can now focus on building upon our already successful partnership, especially over a time period that will see the major regeneration of our town centre and many other essential changes to the infrastructure to enable the planned local growth in the economy.”
