Ringway secures 8 year £16m extension to A417 and A419 maintenance contract
Ringway West Unitaries has secured an eight-year extension to the Highway maintenance and services contract for the A417/A419, at a value of up to £16million for the extension.
Ringway has provided maintenance services and major maintenance capital improvement projects to the DBFO Company since 1996 and the extension will take the contract up to the end of March 2026.
The extension means that Ringway will have provided routine management, maintenance services and major maintenance capital improvement projects, using Eurovia Surfacing and Eurovia Specialist Treatments as key supply chain partners, on behalf of Client RMS for the entire duration of the DBFO Contract, before it is handed back to Highways England at the end of the concession.
The 24-mile stretch of road forms an important strategic link between the M4 and M5, and connects Swindon, Cirencester, Cheltenham and Gloucester, with it being arguably one of the most picturesque Highways England Trunk roads as it crosses the Cotswolds.
Chris Edwards, Ringway West Unitaries Divisional Manager, said: “It is a major achievement to have been awarded such a prestigious contract covering the full 30 years, and it is recognition of the team’s dedication and hard work that RMS has chosen to give us an extension for this final eight year period.”
