Interserve has been re-appointed to the Eastern Highways Alliance Framework 3.
Covering a total of ten councils in the East of England, the framework’s £400m contract will be shared between a number of suppliers, as reported by Highways News last week, with Interserve Construction on two out of three of the contracted projects.
The framework has been divided into three separate Lots, with Dyer & Butler appointed to Lot 1 covering projects with a value of up to £2m.
Covering roundabouts, new roads, cycle paths and related infrastructure work, the framework will provide benefits to the way local authorities in the East of England deliver highway works.
Kevin Bentley, Deputy Leader of Essex County Council and Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, said: “The creation of the Eastern Highways framework 3 has been a huge task, led by Essex County Council, in collaboration with the authorities of the Eastern Highways Alliance.
“It is innovative thinking and partnership working like this which demonstrates how local authorities are collaborating together in adapting to the challenges we face.”
Chris Tyerman, managing director of infrastructure at Interserve Construction, added: “I’m delighted that Interserve has been selected to be part of the team responsible for delivering this strategic series of improvements across the East of England.
“It’s testament to Interserve’s skills, experience and determination to deliver high quality and cost-efficient infrastructure schemes. We look forward to working with all the councils involved in due course.”
