Mott MacDonald and RCS win 12-month extension to Area 3 Highways Agency contract

Mott MacDonald, one of the UK’s leading transport consultants and RCS, the term maintenance business of Balfour Beatty plc have won a further one-year, £90 million extension to their Highways Agency management and maintenance contract for motorways and trunk roads across the Area 3 network in central southern England.
The Highways Agency based the awards on performance, efficiency savings, co-location and integration in the service offered by service providers Mott MacDonald and RCS, who have been working together on the £90 million per annum contract since it was first awarded in 1997 then re-won in 2001 for a further five years. In February last year the contract was extended to September 2007 and this latest extension takes the contract to August 2008, after which there will be a re-bid.

The contract is for the maintenance and improvement of 600km of motorway, 600km of trunk roads and 956 structures across Hampshire, Surrey, Dorset, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire. It includes strategic routes carrying high volume traffic like the M3 and M4 motorways connecting with the M25 Orbital.

Works Manager Andy Hamilton, of RCS, said:
“This extension gives both companies the chance to help the Highways Agency deliver its Customers’ First agenda, and its aims of safe roads, reliable journeys and informed travellers. It also allows us to develop efficiency savings under the Gershon initiative.”
