Aecom wins glut of Highways England contracts

Aecom has bagged more than £25m of work from Highways England in the last two months.

The engineering consultant revealed that it had won four contracts since the start of December, covering the design and development of upgrades and maintenance work across the strategic roads network.

These include Aecom being chosen as the lead consultant for Highways England’s Area 6 and 8 maintenance regions.

The role will see Aecom take more than 50 asset maintenance projects in the areas covering the East of England through scheme development, detailed design and construction.

Last week Kier confirmed that it had taken over as lead contractor on Highways England’s Area 6 and 8 maintenance deals after Amey was removed from the contract in November.

Aecom has also been awarded the lead design consultant role for the planned upgrade of three existing junctions on the A38 between Derby and Little Eaton.

The job will see Aecom develop the £220m scheme up to Highways England’s submission of a development consent order.

The firm has also won deals to provide design services for the £60m upgrade of the A47 Thickthorn and the £70m enhancements for junctions on the A47 / A12 near Great Yarmouth.

Construction News reported earlier this month that Aecom had scooped one of the design contracts for the next wave of Highways England’s smart motorways contracts.

The company’s scope of works covers the M62 and M6 outside Manchester, with Mott MacDonald / Sweco winning the M27 and M3 works in Hampshire and Atkins / Jacobs M60 and M56 in the North-west.

Aecom highways director for Europe Dave Beddell said: “With the majority of work delivered from offices local to the project locations, our teams will work collaboratively with Highways England and our supply chain partners to provide long-term benefits for road users across the country.”
