Harrow Council has appointed awarded a £50 million contract to May Gurney to provide highways maintenance.
Starting in April 2012, the contract lasts for five years with an option to extend for a further two years.
It covers three bundled services lots including maintenance of the council’s vital infrastructure assets such as highways, carriageways, footways gullies, and watercourses.
As part of the contract, May Gurney will also undertake maintenance of highways infrastructure assets belonging to London Underground and Overground, as well as watercourses belonging to the Environment Agency.
The contractor’s current forward order book now stands at £1.5 billion – including framework agreements but excluding extensions – with a pipeline of bidding opportunities and potential extensions worth in excess of £4bn.
May Gurney Chief Executive Philip Fellowes-Prynne said: “We are delighted to be working with Harrow Council on this new contract which reinforces our position as one of the leading providers of highways maintenance services to local authorities in the UK.
“We continue to focus on providing innovative and cost effective solutions to help local authorities manage their essential infrastructure assets and look forward to building a strong and valuable relationship with Harrow Council.”
