HE’s new “Asset Delivery” contract

On October 13, 2020, in HE contracts, Highways England, by PeterSilverman

Highways England have been gradually rolling out its Asset Delivery contract to more areas. Instead of a single contractor there are separate contracts for:

  • Routine maintenance i.e. repairs, emergency incident response and severe weather services
  • Design Services and,
  • Renewal works.

The idea is to give HE more control. As I understand it they will carry out the routine safety / (litter?) inspections.

As one would expect HE’s 2016 PR glossy on the Asset Delivery published in 2016 makes no mention of “litter” in its 12 pages.

HE have provided the following roll out program diagram:

I have asked for a copy of the routine maintenance contract

Earlier contract formats were termed Asset Support Contracts and Progressive Asset Delivery Contracts.

The contract will not apply to the areas subject to the long term DBFO / (Private Finance Initiative) contracts which include all of the roads listed below not just Area 5 (M25 and connecting roads).
