A West Midlands local authority is seeking a contractor for a £280m highways maintenance contract.
Telford & Wrekin Council issued a notice in OJEU saying procurement for the deal would officially start this September.
The contract could be worth up to £280m if the initial seven-year agreement is extended for another seven.
Under the deal, the winner will be given responsibility for overseeing both reactive and planned maintenance on areas including roads, footways, gully cleansing and drainage.
The contract will also allow for the appointed firm to take on minor road improvement schemes for the council. Street lighting and traffic lighting will not be included.
