Lafarge Tarmac has won a highways contract with Rutland County Council potentially worth up to £35m.
The deal is valued at £3.5m a year, and will run for at least five years, with an option to extend the contract by a further five years. It begins immediately.
The contract will involve work on the East Midlands county’s road network including resurfacing, reactive maintenance, gulley cleaning and winter maintenance.
Lafarge Tarmac will be responsible for 500km of roads and 240km of footways for the council.
The Rutland contract follows highways work awarded to the firm this year by Norfolk County Council, Halton and Warrington Borough Councils and Nottinghamshire County Council. The combined value of the deals, including Rutland, is up to £605m.
Lafarge Tarmac Contracting managing director, Paul Fleetham said: “Our success on this contract reflects the strong experience, industry-leading expertise and commitment of Lafarge Tarmac’s team, as well as Rutland County Council’s confidence in our safety, quality and delivery. With our strong presence across the region we will work in partnership with the Council to deliver a first class network for local people and businesses.”
Lafarge Tarmac is in the running to be appointed to the £261m Midlands Highway Alliance medium schemes framework 2. The firm has teamed up with Carillion to bid for both lots of the framework. An announcement is due in January.
