A Tarmac and Kier JV has been awarded a new £25m highways maintenance contract with the London Borough of Barnet
The new highways maintenance contract, valued at approximately £25m, will run for two and half years until September 2023.
The JV is covering a 189km network of TfL roads in the north of London, and all 13 boroughs in the area also have the option to directly access services through the framework.
‘Delivering safe and sustainable maintenance’
Peter Hyde, highways services director at Tarmac, said: “The award of this contract reflects our JV’s ability to work collaboratively with councils to deliver safe and sustainable maintenance and enhancements to critical highways networks across the capital.
“We’re looking forward to getting started and delivering a cost-effective, first-class service for Barnet and TfL that will help to cut congestion and increasingly support sustainable travel.”
James Birch, managing director of local highways at Kier Highways, commented: “We are proud to have been given this opportunity to extend our service proposition in north London to Barnet Council and look forward to providing safe, efficient, and sustainable services to customers in the Borough.”
Geoff Mee, Barnet Council’s executive director of environment, added: “We’re making significant investments in maintaining and improving our highways, ensuring that Barnet’s commuters and all road users continue to benefit from a first-rate network.
“Contracting the Tarmac Kier JV is a cost-efficient way for us to deliver great value-for-money for our residents, while providing a high standard of service.”
