May Gurney wins £50m highways contract extension

May Gurney has won an 18 month contract extension with Norfolk County Council, worth up to £50m.

The Norfolk Strategic Partnership contract, extended to April 2014, includes programme management, highway operations, infrastructure maintenance and  new schemes. The contract is valued at £35m a year.

The Norfolk Strategic Partnership started in 2004 for a period of 10 years, with provision for break points at years five and eight. Under the renegotiated arrangement, the eight year break clause is not exercised and the contracts continue until their full term in April 2014.

May Gurney chief executive Philip Fellowes-Prynne said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract extension with Norfolk County Council and equally pleased with the potential transfer of further works, which is testimony to the high quality work we’re delivering for our client. This demonstrates our success at developing value-driven long-term relationships.”
