Firms alerted to £53m highways-maintenance scheme

A job to maintain highways in north London has gone out to tender.

The £52.8m highways-maintenance contract will run for four years, with the option of an additional two. The work, for the London Borough of Barnet, will cover the maintenance of roads to the tune of £30m.

An additional £6m has been allocated to focus on the maintenance of pavements and cycleways, as well as pothole repairs.

The remaining money will cover the provision of road-traffic signs, network conditioning-monitoring services, fencing and gates.

Investment will also go towards the maintenance of pipes and other drainage systems across the borough.

Interested contractors should register their interest by 7 December here.

Barnet is the third north London borough in the past few months to see progress in highway maintenance work. An £81m job to maintain highways in Brent went live in August, while civils contractor Marlborough Highways clinched a £32m contract to maintain roads in Islington in early July.

In other highway deals this year, consultant Atkins scooped a £36m contract to consult on highways work in Buckinghamshire. Balfour Beatty bagged the construction work on that contract in July.
