Ringway Successfully Mobilises Highways England South West Contract

Highway term service company, Ringway, has been successful in mobilising the 15 year Highways England South West Region Maintenance and Response Contract. Ringway, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Eurovia UK, took on all aspects of cyclic maintenance, reactive maintenance, incident response, severe weather response and associated traffic management from 00.01 on the 1st of July and were immediately in action.

The contract covers 1,686km of strategic road network within Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Co-location and integrated working are key features and 160 staff currently delivering services within Areas 1 and 2 will transfer to the new contract.  Ringway has worked collaboratively with Highways England and the outgoing providers in the formation of the new South West Region to ensure a smooth transfer of both office based and operational staff who will bring with them valuable skills, dedication and extensive knowledge of the network. The integration of Areas 1 and 2 is the first of its kind creating a new South West Region with new operating protocols, delivery model and contractual arrangements with a new Regional Operations Centre (ROC) at the heart of operations.

 

Mike Notman, Term Services Managing Director, Ringway, commented: “The Maintenance and Response Contract represents a positive shift in approach for Highways England and providers to a more collaborative approach to service delivery. We are excited by the opportunity and are looking forward to working closely with Highways England and the new delivery team to facilitate an exciting and industry leading contract delivery model.”

 

Scott Wardrop, Chief Executive of Eurovia, said: “This mobilisation and contract is a major step forward towards our aim of becoming a significant and strategic supplier to Highways England. We look forward to working in collaboration with Highways England to maintain and improve the strategic road network.”
