Eurovia secure double success in Hertfordshire
Surfacing division retains position as major maintenance asphalt surfacing provider plus new appointment for EST
EUROVIA Specialist Treatments (EST) have been appointed as the surface dressing and micro-asphalt surfacing provider to Hertfordshire County Council through its Structural Maintenance and Road Treatments (SMART) Framework.
EST will bring their enhanced digital solutions and investment in the latest fleet to the county, with their state-of-the-art Etnyre chipper spreaders with Acmar spray tankers for two-lane single-pass dressing, and triple-steer tridem Breining vehicles for enhanced manoeuvrability, maximizing safety and productivity in urban areas.
This innovative equipment and EST’s unique approach through Eurovia’s Walk, Talk & Build programme, will also support the Council in achieving its wider carbon-reduction objectives.
Divisional manager Chris Edwards said: ‘We are really pleased with this excellent result in securing countywide surface dressing and micro-surfacing in Hertfordshire for the next six years.
‘We knew that the competition was going to have a strong showing, so to come out on top really is an achievement to be proud of, particularly for a client such as Hertfordshire with its high level of technical and material expertise.’
Meanwhile, Eurovia Surfacing have retained their position as the major maintenance asphalt surfacing provider to the County Council through the SMART Framework.
The company has been undertaking such works in Hertfordshire for the past seven years under two previous contracts and will now continue to deliver this, along with significant surface enhancements, over the next six years.
Eurovia Surfacing say they have pioneered a new approach to surfacing in the county, blending collaboration through the Walk, Talk & Build programme with a highly technical surfacing approach utilizing digital technology and their unique Formula Road training programme.
They too will be supporting Hertfordshire in achieving its climate change targets, through innovative materials and revised ways of working. The County Council will also have access to Eurovia’s Surfacing Apprenticeship Scheme – the first of its kind in the UK sector.
Phil Skegg, managing director of Eurovia Contracting, said: ‘I am extremely pleased that we have been given this opportunity to renew our strong partnership with Hertfordshire County Council and to continue to deliver surfacing works for the next six years.
‘We are continuing to innovate in our surfacing approach and looking for new ways in which we can deliver our services in a sustainable, carbon-efficient way. I am excited about the changes that our unique approach will bring to the county and how we can support Hertfordshire in achieving its wider objectives.’
