VolkerHighways scoops £200m Luton roads contract

VolkerHighways has scooped a £200m deal to carry out maintenance and upgrade work on Luton’s roads for the next decade.

The highways maintenance, major projects and professional services contract will see the firm carry out work for the next 10 years, with an option of a further five years, on behalf of Luton Borough Council.

The company will work closely with design consultants The Project Centre on the maintenance of carriageways, footways and street lighting as well as winter maintenance.

The contract award comes after VolkerHighways carried out a number of standalone projects for Luton Borough Council, including surfacing works for the Luton-to-Dunstable guided busway and the pedestrianisation of the town centre.

VolkerHighways managing director Alistair Thompson said: “As well as providing a continuity of highway maintenance service to the residents and road users of Luton, this contract will allow us to strengthen our existing relationships across the borough’s various communities.

“VolkerHighways looks forward to working collaboratively with Luton Borough Council in this exciting new agreement, which brings together all the highways infrastructure disciplines, from design to routine and reactive maintenance as well as lighting and winter gritting.”
