Balfour Beatty wins £34m Warwickshire Highways extension


Balfour Beatty Living Places has been awarded a one-year extension worth £34m on its Warwickshire Highways Maintenance Contract

The extension on the Warwickshire Highways Maintenance contract was given by Coventry City Council, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council.

This latest award, which marks the second extension on the original seven-year contract will see this partnership run to Spring 2025.

The Warwickshire Highways Maintenance contract extension is further testament to Balfour Beatty Living Places ongoing commitment to delivering key maintenance works to schedule across the boroughs.

Balfour Beatty Living Places will continue to work closely with the three councils to deliver a variety of specialist services including winter maintenance works and installation of new energy-efficient street lighting in Warwickshire.

Balfour Beatty Living Places managing director, Steve Helliwell, said: “We have significant expertise and experience in delivering highways maintenance schemes with this second contract extension testament to the quality of the works, added value and innovative approaches we deliver for local authorities across the UK.

“We look forward to continuing our close working relationship with the three councils over the next 12 months, to benefit the local community and travelling public for years to come.”

Warwickshire County Councillor Jeff Clarke, portfolio holder for transport and planning, commented: “Warwickshire County Council wants communities to be supported by excellent transport infrastructure and the highway network is one of the council’s most valuable assets, so it is vital that it is efficiently maintained.

“This extension of our contract with Balfour Beatty Living Places will help us to continue our successful and long-term partnership with them and enable us to carry on delivering innovation and added value to our highway maintenance works.

“Balfour Beatty Living Places, through excellent performance, have achieved all of their Key Performance Indicators, so we have granted this new extension to them to continue managing our highway services to the usual high standards expected by our residents. This contract will continue to be used by Warwickshire County Council to deliver all of its highway maintenance requirements.”

As part of the Warwickshire Highways Maintenance contract extension and the company’s commitment to The 5% Club, Balfour Beatty Living Places is providing five apprenticeship positions and a unique internship programme aimed specifically at young people with disabilities and additional needs.
