FM Conway has bagged a £130m contract for highways services across the London borough of Croydon.
The contract, which will run for an initial period of seven years, will see the contractor support Croydon Council’s £5.25bn regeneration of the borough, providing highways maintenance services and public realm upgrades.
Over the first seven years of the deal, the council has set aside £36.7m for road improvements and a further £50m for public realm upgrades.
Croydon also has an option to extend the deal by three years based on FM Conway’s performance.
The contractor has pledged to provide employment opportunities for those living in the borough through Croydon’s employment service, Croydon Works.
In April 2017 FM Conway secured a five-year deal to manage and maintain the Kensington and Chelsea Borough Council’s road network.
In May this year the contractor was also picked as one of 11 firms on Highways England’s £3.3bn national road resurfacing framework.
FM Conway maintenance director James Tallon: “Our focus will be on supporting the council’s ambitious regeneration programme, bringing our extensive expertise as a partner to London’s boroughs to bear to deliver services innovatively and efficiently in a way that maximises investment and ultimately improves the experience of road users in Croydon.”
