Carillion awarded £100m

Carillion has won a 20-year contract worth around £100m for the maintenance of the M40 between the M25 and Warwick.

The contract has been awarded by UK Highways, which has a 30-year concession with the Highways Agency to operate and maintain this sector of the M40. Carillion has been the maintenance provider for the first 10 years of the concession.

The new contract includes network management, safety inspections, cyclical and routine maintenance, accident and emergency response, third party claims and winter maintenance.

Carillion’s chief executive John McDonough commented: ‘We are delighted to have been awarded this extended contract. This will enable us to continue to build on the investment we have made in providing a high quality service for road users.’
