Ringway lands £270m South-west roads contract

Highways England has awarded a contract worth up to £270m to Ringway for road maintenance and upgrades in the South-west of England.

The contract award, revealed today, is the largest of a number of ‘asset delivery’ contracts in the region under £15bn Roads Investment Strategy to improve and maintain the UK’s motorways and major A roads.

Highways England will take direct responsibility of routine maintenance and delivery of capital renewal schemes under the asset delivery set-up.

The system replaces previous management agent contracts. 

The contract awarded to Ringway, which starts on 1 July, will run for up to 15 years and focus on cyclical and incident maintenance and response across the South-west, Highways England said. 

The agency’s South-west regional director Andrew Page-Dove said: “This appointment brings more diversity and resilience to our supply chain in the South-west.”

It was revealed last month that Kier had bagged a £40m asset delivery design contract for Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Gloucestershire, which will sit alongside Ringway’s contract.
