Winner for £2bn Sheffield highways PFI

11 April 2012 Sheffield City Council has selected a preferred bidder for its multi-billion pound highways maintenance PFI deal.
Amey won the deal, beating competition from a Carillion/Mouchel joint venture, to "transform" the city's highway network for the next 25 years.

"We made the decision to award the contract to Amey as they offer the best value for money in their proposals for improving and maintaining the city’s highway network to the standard required by the council," said John Mothersole, chief executive of the council.

The project is one of the largest local authority highway schemes in the UK and the contract will be one of Amey’s biggest. Amey will now be tasked with addressing the backlog of repairs and refurbishing the city’s roads, pavements, bridges and streetscene within the first five years of the contract and then maintaining them to the improved standard throughout the remaining 20 years of the contract. The deal also includes services such as street cleaning, winter gritting and landscape maintenance.

Work on-site is due to begin in August 2012.
