The London Borough of Barnet Council has started the procurement for its highway maintenance works contracts worth up to a potential £74.4m.
The services required cover traffic safety and management, highway steel and fabrication works, drainage maintenance, drainage installation and replacement, carriageway construction, road condition surveys, kerbs, footways, cycleways, paved areas, traffic signs, road studs and markings, materials sampling and testing services.
The framework agreement will commence on 1 April 2023 and run for an initial four years with an optional extension of up to two years, reports New Civil Engineer.
The contract is divided into 10 lots worth between £600,000 and £30M. Contractors can submit tenders for a maximum of two. The Borough anticipates a maximum of 20 participants on the framework.
Providers will be expected to pro-actively support social value delivery. This includes better environment services and reduction of the carbon footprint, using electric company vehicles when possible and decarbonising the supply chain as far as possible. It also hopes to see young residents helped into work through employment and apprenticeships with contractors on this framework.
The deadline for applications is 7 December. The Borough is aiming to announce the contract winners on 11 January 2023.
