Amey, one of the UK’s leading public and regulated services providers has secured a place on Lot 1 and Lot 3a of the Highways Agency’s Collaborative Delivery Framework (CDF).

The four year framework, which has the option to be extended by a further two years, will see suppliers delivering engineering and design services through to construction works, in connection with the Agency’s national investment programme.

Engineering design services for civil works, feasibility studies, stakeholder liaison and traffic modelling services will all form part of Lot 1. While Lot 3a will see Amey involved in delivering high value construction works, with schemes typically worth between £25-£100m.

Mel Ewell, Chief Executive of Amey said: “Securing a position on the framework will allow us to design innovative but practical schemes with their delivery and operation in mind.”

“We look forward to further supporting the Highways Agency in delivering an improved UK strategic road network through long-term investment, sharing of best practice and working collaboratively with other delivery partners.”

Graham Dalton, Highways Agency Chief Executive said: “This framework is the largest we have ever awarded. It will allow the Agency to deliver large scale improvements to England’s strategic roads, enabling economic growth across the country.

"It is not just the scale of this framework that is important, but the way it is designed to bring the Agency, designers and contractors together in one large collaborative team. We expect to deliver this major investment programme efficiently, speedily, and with real effort to minimise disruption to road users while we build."

Examples of schemes to be commissioned through the CDF include the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon, Smart Motorways Programme, and conventional schemes such as widening and bypasses, junctions, super pinch points as well as asset renewal works.
