Surrey Council invites bids for £200m highways maintenance deal

Surrey County Council is inviting contractors to bid for a contract to carry out its next highways maintenance programme, which could be worth up to £200 million.

The £20 million-per-year deal will run from January 2011 for an initial six years with two optional extensions of two years each.

Work to be carried out includes minor planned maintenance to road carriageway and footway, reactive repairs to carriageway, accident and emergency response, and winter maintenance as well as routine structures maintenance, replacement and cleaning of signs and pre-patching works for major maintenance.

The contract also covers general civil engineering such as cycleway and footway maintenance, drainage infrastructure and safety barriers and integrated transport and safety schemes.

Firms have until 30 April to express their interest in the contract. Five bidders to participate in competitive dialogue but only three will make it to the detailed stage of procurement process.
