Balfour Beatty Mott MacDonald awarded Highways Agency Asset Support Contract for Area 10

Mott MacDonald, and its joint venture partner Balfour Beatty, have been awarded the Asset Support Contract (ASC) for Area 10 by the UK’s Highways Agency. The appointment will see the joint venture operate, maintain and improve part of the strategic route network in the North West of England.

ASCs replaced the old managing agents contracts (MAC) and enhanced managing agents contracts (EMAC) this year. The new contracts aim to ensure motorways and major 'A' roads are maintained to high standards while delivering substantial savings to help the Highways Agency meet its contribution to reducing the budget deficit.

The Area 10 ASC covers 500km of motorway and trunk route carriageway including 2500 structures throughout Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Merseyside and southern parts of Lancashire. The contract runs over the next five years and adds to Balfour Beatty Mott MacDonald’s current portfolio which includes the Area 4 contract in the South East.

David Tarrant, Balfour Beatty Mott MacDonald director and managing director of highways at Mott MacDonald, said: “Being awarded the Area 10 ASC contract in the North West is very important for Balfour Beatty Mott MacDonald. It demonstrates that our record of providing industry-leading skills in asset management, strategy and innovation, and value for money is something that our customer has faith in and we look forward to partnering with them in the years to come.”

The contract is due to begin on 4th November and lasts for five years, with options for extensions of up to three years.
