Amey secures £49m contract extension

North Lanarkshire Council (NLC) has extended Amey’s highways maintenance and management contract until June 2024.

Amey has been managing the maintenance of roads, street lighting, traffic management and infrastructure along with winter service and the provision of emergency response service, since the ten-and-a-half-year contract began with NLC in December 2010.

In 2018 Amey along with NLC undertook a ‘Year 8 Service Review’ to assess the performance of the contract to determine if all contractual obligations were delivered. The review looked at all operational, financial, governance and risk management performance.

Following these reviews, NLC extended the existing contract by three years.

Kenny Kerr, Business Director at Amey, said: “I’m pleased that North Lanarkshire Council has extended our contract to enable us to continue to deliver highways maintenance support in the area. With a team of over 150 people, which includes seven apprentices, we’re delighted to be able to ensure that until 2024 we’ll be keeping residents safe and mobile whilst travelling on our roads.”

The contract extension will see the teams undertake a variety of jobs comprising; emergency repairs, patching, resurfacing, kerbing repairs, reoccurring maintenance repairs, repair of road drainage systems, vehicle restraint system repairs and installations, street lighting (maintenance and refurbishment), traffic sign maintenance and installations, provision of winter service for roads, as well as maintaining footways and footpaths.
