Balfour Beatty wins £245m Midlands’s Highways contract
Posted on: 03/02/2016

Leading international infrastructure group Balfour Beatty has won a £245m contract for Coventry City Council, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council, to provide highway maintenance services across Warwickshire.

Balfour Beatty has delivered Highways maintenance services across Warwickshire over the last five years, and the new highways contract has been set for seven years with an option to extend for a further three years. The firm’s 120-strong team in the region will work on 5,000km of road, including winter and street light maintenance.

Leo Quinn, group chief executive of Balfour Beatty, said: "We build long-term relationships with local authorities that add real value to communities.

"With a clear focus on the outcomes that matter to communities, we are helping local authorities to deliver better value for money. This contract award is a real endorsement of the excellent service we have provided across Warwickshire since 2011 and gives us the opportunity to build upon our successes.”

Although Wiltshire County Council has recently terminated a contract with them, and handing it over to Ringway, last week Balfour Beatty also secured a £55m two-year extension to its West Sussex highways works.
