Balfour Beatty has landed a £124m contract for the design and construction of 13 road schemes in Berkshire.
The contractor was chosen by Wokingham Borough Council for the four-year major highways programme deal, awarded under the Scape national civil engineering and infrastructure framework.
The package of works will cover the planning, design and construction of nine road schemes in Wokingham, as well as four strategic roads that will provide access to 12,000 new homes outside the town.
The programme will begin this month and is expected to involve more than 150 staff the at peak of construction.
Balfour Beatty is the sole contractor on the £1.5bn four-year Scape infrastructure framework, which will end in January 2019.
Scape began procurement for its new civil engineering framework in November, with the new deal to be split into two lots and double in value to £2bn.
Balfour Beatty Construction Services chief executive Dean Banks: “We have a wealth of experience in delivering significant highways schemes across the UK and this contract award is yet another testament not only to our in-house engineering capabilities, but to our clients’ confidence in our ability to deliver.”
