Skanska has been appointed to a six-year highways construction framework by West Sussex County Council.
The Major Projects Framework is a £250 million investment in the county’s roads and associated infrastructure. Projects put in place through the framework will likely include large bypass schemes, town centre redevelopments, highway structural improvements, carriageway resurfacing and drainage improvements.
The framework is divided into two separate lots. The first encompasses projects worth less that £2 million, while the second covers large design and build contracts with values in excess of £2 million. Skanska will be eligible to win projects within the latter. The first contracts within the framework are expected to be awarded in February.
Skanska Operations Director Gerry Curran said: “We are delighted to be supporting West Sussex County Council in the delivery of such a substantial infrastructure investment.
“This framework is an excellent mechanism through which we can help the council to provide significant improvements for road users. It will further integrate the authority’s planning, design and construction processes, meaning that projects are completed in the most timely and cost-effective way possible.
“The Skanska highways team has a fantastic track record of collaboration with our customers in East Anglia, the south-west, and the south-east of England, and my focus is to now bring that same approach to West Sussex.”
