Mott MacDonald is appointed to Highways Agency on technical consultancy framework

Mott MacDonald is one of five suppliers to have been awarded a contract on a new framework to support the management, maintenance and improvement of England’s motorways and major trunk roads. This framework gives the Highways Agency access to specialist advice in areas ranging from research and development through to the implementation of standards and guidance.

This contract has been awarded by the Highways Agency to Mott MacDonald as the lead in the Highways Consultancy Group/Highways Research Group (HCG/HRG) Consortium. Mott MacDonald will work in partnership with Scott Wilson, Mouchel, Amey Consulting and CIRIA, along with an extensive supply chain of over 30 supporting companies to deliver these services.

Tim Groves, Mott MacDonald’s contract manager for the framework said, “We are very excited to be selected to continue our support for the Highways Agency in its goals for delivering innovation, safety and improvement. The framework valued at £130m is for work commissioned over an 18-month period (with a one-year extension option) and signals substantial investment to keep the Highways Agency at the forefront of technical innovation in construction, maintenance and operation of the strategic road network.”

The framework approach builds on the success of previous similar arrangements and is designed to ensure good value for money by gaining access to specialist expertise without the need to tender for individual projects. The scope of services provided will be extremely wide, ranging from support on major projects valued at several million pounds and lasting several years to small tasks requiring just a few days’ work.

The framework which commences this month and will last until 2011 – with a potential extension to 2012 – will have a similar scope to the technical consultancy, research and development frameworks delivered by the same Consortium from 2006 to 2009. Mott MacDonald and its partners received 100 task orders through those frameworks.

Projects completed through the previous frameworks include consultancy services for road restraints, advice on structural materials and components, support on departures from standards, developing lean processes, value management, environmental support, geographical information systems, improving safety, improved technology, improved journey time reliability, managed motorways, health and safety management, traffic control equipment, winter service management, road works and incidents, drainage and flooding, collaboration and efficiency, advice on road lighting and energy saving , landscape and townscape assessment, spatial planning, scheme appraisal, network management and travel planning, research and development.
