Infrastructure services, buildings and developments and housing group Kier has secured three-year extensions on its Highways England Areas 3 and 9 contracts valued at around £250 million a year.

 

These contracts involve routine highway maintenance services, repairs to defects, emergency incident response services and severe weather services on the Highways England road network.

 

The Area 3 contract covers major roads in Hampshire, Berkshire, parts of Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Dorset. Kier has held this contract since 2008 and it has now been extended to October 2021.

 

The Area 9 contract covers major roads in Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire, as well as parts of Gloucestershire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. Kier has held this contract since 2014 and it now runs until June 2022. Area 9 is the largest area within Highways England's network.

 

The extensions will allow Highways England to deliver a phased roll-out of its full asset delivery model, which it is committed to implementing across its entire network.
