Essex County Council has started to make plans to talk to contractors ahead of the renewal of its highways contract in 2027.
The council is keen to engage with contractors about its plans for highway maintenance after the end of its current arrangement with Ringway Jacobs ends.
Essex County Council is looking at what service will be required from April 2027 to maintain and improve its network of 5,000 miles of highway, 4,000 miles of footway and more than a quarter of a million streetlights, according to a report by Construction Index.
The first event will be held on Wednesday 5th July in Chelmsford, where the highways industry is invited to attend in-person or online to learn more about working with the council, its ambitions and commitments.
