Civil engineering and infrastructure services company Marlborough Highways has been awarded a five-year contract for the provision of Highway Maintenance and Minor Improvement Works for the London Borough of Haringey through the LCP Major Works Framework.
The contract is due to start in July 2020, will run for five years with the option to extend for a further 2 years and is valued at around £56 million. The work will cover all aspects of highway infrastructure including carriageway, footway and cycleway maintenance as well as new build highway projects which include junction improvements, traffic calming measures, gully, drainage works and sustainable drainage systems (SuDS). Marlborough will also provide emergency 24/7 response for the duration of the Contract.
Marlborough was awarded Haringey’s 4-year Street Lighting and Minor Improvement Works Contract last year which began in October. This included maintenance work as well as reactive and ad-hoc capital work providing essential upgrades and maintenance for the Borough to help improve public safety.
Matthew Revell, Managing Director at Marlborough Highways commented “We have been working really well with Haringey on the Street Lighting Contract and we are thrilled to have now also been awarded their Highway Maintenance Contract. We look forward to developing the relationship with Haringey further, providing a consolidated service between the two Contracts.”
Marlborough is fully committed to helping Haringey’s community through the Tottenham Charter and the Borough Plan which involves employing locally, providing highway maintenance skills training for the unemployed as well as engaging with schools and volunteer groups within the local community. In addition to this, Marlborough will help apprentices that are on low incomes with childcare support to help them improve the career prospects.
Working as ‘one team’, Haringey can rely on Marlborough for their expertise and experience across all areas of the business: surfacing, highway maintenance, road marking, street lighting, infrastructure and traffic management. Marlborough will start to build upon their existing Haringey team to ensure they have the right mix of industry and technical expertise, practical knowledge and leadership skills for the new Highway Maintenance Contract.
