Ringway has recently signed the contract to provide term maintenance and improvement services to North Yorkshire County Council and its highways network. The contract worth circa £250 million, will begin in April 2012, and could potentially see Ringway servicing the county for the next 10 years.
The contract, which was previously held by Balfour Beatty, will cover all aspects of highway maintenance and highway improvement including gully emptying, grass cutting, bridge repair and maintenance, street lighting maintenance. Ringway has also set up a fleet services workshop which will be responsible for the servicing, repairs and recovery of the council’s commercial vehicles, the fleet of staff company cars and Group vehicles in the North Yorkshire area.
Chris Connor, Managing Director of Ringway said, “We are delighted to have won this contract and are very much looking forward to mobilising with North Yorkshire County Council to deliver a variety of highways and street improvement services. We are particularly looking forward to working on a more rural road system and the opportunities available in such a diverse county.”
With contracts across the UK, Ringway has a rich experience of delivering all types, from traditional schedule of rates contracts through to managing agent contractor approaches, DBFOs and Private Finance Initiatives.
From small defect repairs to routine maintenance and local construction schemes, Ringway can deploy its range of services, with wide-ranging experience, across North Yorkshire and with the ability to innovate and grow together with the county’s Council and community.
