Infrastructure services firm AECOM has secured five contracts worth over £25m in fees with Highways England.
AECOM will deliver a range of multidisciplinary services, including highway, structural and geotechnical engineering, environmental and planning consultancy services including public consultation, traffic and economic forecasting and traffic technology services.
The contracts include smart motorway schemes
Dave Beddell, AECOM’s highways director – Europe, said: ‘These latest contract wins highlight the breadth and capacity of the multidisciplinary services AECOM is able to bring to vital highway maintenance and improvement programmes.
‘With the majority of work delivered from offices local to the project locations, our teams will work collaboratively with Highways England and our supply chain partners to provide long-term benefits for road users across the country.’
One contract is for the delivery of multidisciplinary services for the A38 Derby Junctions scheme. The project involves improvements to three existing junctions at Kingsway, Markeaton and Little Eaton, which suffer from heavy congestion.
AECOM has also extended its remit on two contracts to help improve traffic flow on the A47 near Norwich as part of the A47 corridor improvement programme.
Under another contract, AECOM has been appointed as the Lot 1 consultant for Design Package 1 in Areas 6 and 8, which cover East Anglia and the East of England. Procured through Highways England’s collaborative delivery framework, the contract is part of a new programme-based delivery model for all capital investment works in Areas 6 and 8.
The firm will also provide operational assessments, engineering design and traffic technology services for two Smart Motorway schemes – M62 Junctions 10 – 12 and M6 Junctions 21a – 26.
