Hanson re-secure Dorset Highways contract
Company wins new agreement with potential 10-year duration and total value of more than £100 million
HANSON Contracting have re-secured their strategic partnership contract with Dorset Highways for maintenance of the county’s road network. The agreement, which starts on 1 April 2017, has a potential duration of 10 years and a total value of more than £100 million.
Hanson have worked as the main supply contractor for Dorset Highways since 2002, laying over 1 million tonnes of asphalt and delivering high-profile projects including the Olympic transport package in Weymouth, Swanage recycling centre and, most recently, the A338 Bournemouth spur road upgrade.
Andrew Martin, Dorset’s service director for highways and emergency planning, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to extend our partnership arrangements with Hanson into a third-generation contract. We have worked successfully together for the last 15 years to deliver capital maintenance and highway improvement programme across the county.
‘Hanson submitted a very attractive proposal in both price and quality, and also put forward a number of exciting new initiatives which we are looking forward to developing and implementing as the contract progresses.’
Hanson Contracting’s major projects director, Denis Curran, said: ‘We are very pleased to be awarded this new partnership contract and to extend our collaborative working arrangements with Dorset County Council. We look forward to delivering a high-quality highways service.’
