A West Midlands support service provider has won a major £20 million contract to manage roads in the South East.
The Birmingham branch of Amey was awarded the job to manage the technology that keeps motorways and trunk roads up to speed.
Chief executive of Amey, Mel Ewell, was delighted about the development for the company. She said: “Amey’s strategic growth over the past few years has enabled the business to provide a truly integrated end to end service for our customers. This success represents a real breakthrough in the extension of the range of engineering consultancy services Amey is now providing to the Highways Agency and we look forward to delivering an enhanced level of service to the Highways Agency and motorists across the UK.”
The company will be working closely with the Highways Agency to maintain the 16,000 pieces of technological equipment that keep the traffic running smoothly on motorways such as the M25, M20 and M23. These roads are some of the busiest in the country, passing Heathrow and Gatwick and circling London.
Amey is one of the UK’s leading support service partners, specialising in the outsourcing of sustainable business solutions. The company works in partnership with customers across the aviation, central government, defence, education, local government, rail and strategic highways sectors.
Amey’s consulting division also recently won a £150 million contract with Plymouth City Council to carry out work on the city’s roads.
