Hanson Contracting has re-secured its strategic partnership contract with Dorset Highways for the maintenance of the road network in the county. The agreement starts on 1 April 2017 and has a potential duration of 10 years, with a total value of over £100 million.

Hanson has worked as the main supply contractor for Dorset Highways since 2002, laying over 1 million t of asphalt. It has delivered a number of 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.”
