A contract with almost £50 million which will help shape the future of roads across the North West of England has been awarded by Highways England.
The design services contract for motorways and major A roads in Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire and South Lancashire is worth £49.7 million, will run for up to five years and has been awarded to Amey Consulting as part of Highways England’s Asset Delivery operating model.
The contract, which starts in April 2019, will see Amey Consulting carrying out the designs of structures, drains, barriers, signs, landscaping, lighting, traffic signals and other features across the North West’s 260 miles of motorway and 50 miles of major A road.
The latest design services contract is the second of the Asset Delivery suite of contracts to be awarded in the Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire and South Lancashire area.
In October, Amey was awarded the £325 million Asset Delivery Maintenance and Response contract which will run for up to 15 years.
The Construction Works Framework is due to be awarded in the coming months.
