Procurement of Highways Contracts pdf icon PDF 127 KB

    The Council recognise the vital role played by our roads, pavements, cycleways and other highway assets in the lives of residents and businesses. For many years, the Council has engaged private sector organisations to deliver highway services on its behalf to maximise the benefits of public and private sector knowledge and experience in delivering such services. There are several contract arrangements that will come to an end in April 2022 which cannot be extended any further as all extensions have been granted.  Cabinet’s approval is therefore sought for the future contract strategy for the service, which begins with the procurement of new contracts to commence in April 2022.

A31 and Blackwater Valley Relief Road (BVR) Balancing Pond Restoration Procurement pdf icon PDF 110 KB

    The A31 and A331, also known as the Blackwater Valley Relief Road (BVR) have several balancing ponds along their length that form an integral part of the highway drainage system.  Recent surveys and reports have confirmed that works are required to ensure the assets are performing as designed, and funding to refurbish and maintain these assets was approved in March 2020 as part of the Council’s Medium Term Financial Plan. This report seeks approval for the addition of these works to the Annual Procurement Forward Plan to allow us to procure a specialist contractor to refurbish and maintain these assets.
