Streets Ahead is a huge citywide highways maintenance contract between Amey and Sheffield City Council that is upgrading and maintaining the condition of the city’s roads, pavements, street lights, bridges and other assets on or around the streets. It's the largest highway investment contract ever seen in Sheffield, worth over £2bn. It began in 2012 and runs for 25 years.
The contract has already transformed 75 per cent of the city’s roads within the first five years, turning them from some of the worst in the country to the best. We are now maintaining the infrastructure at its improved standard for the remaining years of the contract.
We are improving and maintaining 1,180 miles of road, 2,050 miles of pavement, 68,000 street lights, 36,000 highway trees, 28,000 street signs, 72,000 drainage gullies, 480 traffic signals, 18,000 items of street furniture, 2.9 million sqm of grass verges and over 600 bridges and highway structures.
We also deliver a street cleansing service which includes the maintenance of 2,500 litter bins and the collection of 500-600 tonnes of waste each month.
Our winter services involve gritting 610 miles of road when temperatures drop below zero, maintaining 1,700 grit bins and treating priority pavements in icy conditions.
We have around 500 operatives and office staff working round the clock on these services as well as getting involved in lots of community, charity, education and social values work across the city region.
We are looking for a number of individuals to join the contract, if you would like to find out more about the specific role and register your interest, please click on the links below:
