July 1 sees the commencement of The Highways Agency’s first Enhanced Managing Agent Contract (EMAC) which has been awarded to InterRoute, the integrated joint venture partnership between Mott MacDonald and RCS. The contract will operate in Highways Agency Area 2, which covers the motorways and trunk roads in Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, North Somerset, Wiltshire, Swindon, Somerset and parts of Dorset and Devon.

They will assist with management and operation of the network, co-ordinating its actions from a control centre which will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The contract includes the maintenance and development of highway technology, such as roadside communications, telephones and electronic road signs, for the whole south-west region.
