Highways Agency extends Mott MacDonald’s area 3 contract for further 12 months

Mott MacDonald and Hampshire County Council have been awarded a twelve month extension to their contract as The Highways Agency’s managing agent for the Area 3 road network in central southern England. The extension takes the contract, awarded in September 2001 for a period of five years, to September 2007.

Area 3 covers over 1400 km of carriageway extending from Oxford in the north to Bere Regis on the Dorset coast and from Swindon in the west to Chichester and Guildford in the east and involves management of the term maintenance contractor, landscape and environmental management, traffic safety, traffic management, electrical maintenance of street lighting and design and supervision of major maintenance contracts.

“We’re delighted that the Highways Agency has extended the Area 3 contract with Mott MacDonald for a further twelve months. It will allow the team to build on the work it has achieved since 2001 when it was awarded the Area 3 contract for a second term,” says Mott MacDonald director David Richards who runs the commission.

Mott MacDonald is now managing the maintenance of roads covering most of the south of England with contracts for three of the Highways Agency’s road networks, Area 2, Area 3 and Area 4.


Note to editors

1. Area 2 was awarded in December 2004 to InterRoute, the integrated joint venture partnership between Mott MacDonald and RCS, and is the Highways Agency’s first Enhanced Managing Agent Contract (EMAC) covering 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. The Area 2 contract begins on 1 July 2005 and runs for five years with a possible two year extension.

2. Area 4 covers trunk roads and motorways in Kent, East and West Sussex and small parts of Surrey & Hampshire. The four-year contract, with an option for a further three-year extension, was awarded to InterRoute in June 2003.
