Companies invited to tender for asset support contracts

The Highways Agency has invited companies to tender for the asset support contracts (ASC) in Areas 4 and 12.

A spokesperson for the Highways Agency said: “Asset support contracts (ASC) represent a major step forward in the way that routine maintenance is delivered on England’s motorways and major A roads.

“They allow contractors to innovate and to find more cost effective and efficient ways of delivering maintenance, while still retaining the high level of safety that road users have come to expect of the strategic road network.

“The maintenance contracting market has expressed an appetite for this work and is fully engaged with the direction that the Agency is taking with the new ASCs. These contracts are less prescriptive and focus on the outcomes we want to achieve, allowing our contractors to assess what they require in order to deliver the service that we expect of them. This enables our supply chain to focus on achieving outcomes, giving them freedom to innovate and to find more efficient ways of working.”
