Amey is celebrating two local bid successes on its highways accounts – the Generation 3 Frameworks in Hampshire and the Derriford Transport Scheme in Plymouth.

Generation 3 Frameworks

Amey has been awarded a place on Hampshire County Council’s Generation 3.1 (minor works) and 3.2 (medium works) Frameworks. The Frameworks enable the County Council to award large highways schemes and categorise schemes according to value.

Both Frameworks started on April 1 2016 and include all schemes up to £10m in value, which range from routine footway and highways improvements to specialist and complex civils work. The Frameworks are open to other local authorities to use.

Derriford Transport Scheme

The £12m Derriford Transport Scheme will help to reduce congestion as well as create more road capacity for the increased traffic generated by the proposed developments in the area. It will also include better facilities for public transport, walking and cycling to connect local people to new homes, jobs and leisure and health facilities in the city. Work is expected to begin in July and last approximately 12 months.

Amey’s highways team in Plymouth also successfully delivered the new Marjon Link Road, which opened at the end of last year.

David Ogden, Business Director, said: “These two contract wins are fantastic news for our local highways teams in Plymouth and Hampshire and increase the breadth of work we do across the south of England. The bid teams have worked tirelessly with Hampshire County Council and Plymouth City Council to understand the needs of the local community and improve local infrastructure.”
