Highways England has signed a deal with 11 contractors across the country to enable the company to respond more quickly when motorways and major A roads need to be resurfaced.

The framework will be worth an estimated £3.3bn over the next four years and has been split into 12 lots, divided by regions and major and small renewal jobs. Two firms have been appointed to each Highways England region.

Tarmac Trading came out top scooping five of the six regional lots for projects worth more than £1m with Aggregate Industries picking up four regions.

Pavement contractor line-up

Aggregate Industries UK;  Breedon Bow Highways; Cemex Construction Services; Colas; Eurovia Infrastructure; FM Conway; Galliford Try Infrastructure; Hanson Contracting; Huyton Asphalt; Tarmac Trading;  Toppesfield

Highways England’s executive director of operations Nick Harris said: “We know that drivers want and deserve good quality, safe roads which is why since 2015 when Highways England was created we have replaced more than 4,400 miles of road surface.

“This new arrangement will help us tackle uneven road surfaces faster, in a more cost effective and efficient way – keeping journeys safer and offering smoother journeys for the millions of drivers who use our roads every day.”

The framework arrangement also enables local authorities to utilise the services of the contractors, facilitating greater collaboration.

The framework is broken down into six geographical areas with two lots per area covering scheme either worth under or over £1m.
