Tarmac has been awarded a £60m highways contract from Nottinghamshire County Council.

The five-year deal has an extension option which could take its total value to £120m.

The contract involves the delivery of a wide range of highways services including resurfacing, gulley cleaning, street lighting, road marking and earthworks.

Tarmac’s National Contracting division will work in partnership with the council’s in-house highways team when the deal starts in April.

Nottinghamshire County Council is looking to save over £2m each year through efficiency initiatives with the cash reinvested into improving the condition of the county’s existing road network.

Paul Fleetham, Managing Director of Tarmac National Contracting said: “This achievement reflects our strong track record of working in partnership with councils and local authorities to successfully deliver strategic, long-term contracts on significant highways networks.

“Against a challenging economic backdrop and cuts to highways budgets, innovative partnerships between the private and public sectors are key.

“We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Nottinghamshire County Council and our work with the Council will continue to demonstrate a cost-effective approach, helping to unlock efficiency savings as well as providing a first-class highways service for the county.”

Councillor Richard Jackson, Chairman of the Council’s highways and transport committee said: “I am particularly pleased that under its terms 90% of the work will be carried out using the local workforce and suppliers and that it will allow some £2m to be reinvested back into our highways network where it will be used to carry out much-needed maintenance work such as repairs to potholes.”
