Wiltshire Council has started the search for contractors to bid for highway maintenance delivery in the region over the next five to ten years.
Presently, Ringway is the current incumbent, who came in after a original contractor Balfour Beatty left the contract.
Before the bidding starts officially next April, the council is planning a suppliers engagement day at the end of this month to discuss options for re-tendering of the Term Highways Maintenance Service contract to start on 1st April 2023, reports Construction Enquirer.
Current average annual spend through the contract is £15m, with potential for this to increase with additional capital funding.
The contract will be for the provision of a highways maintenance service to undertake a programme of maintenance and improvements of the highways and roads network or other council land in Wiltshire and associated infrastructure.
The successful contractor will also be expected to work alongside the authority to help it achieve its commitment to becoming carbon natural by 2030.
The contract is for five years with a possible five year extension after year four.
