The contract duration is for an initial period of seven years with opportunities to extend up to 14 years.
Delivery under the new contract gets underway from the beginning with works such as winter maintenance, emergency services, cleaning signs, painting white lines and structural maintenance already planned and programmed as the council and Ringway Jacobs look to hit the ground running.

“We are certain that the new contract will bring with it further improvements to our road network, better returns on investment and with that, more satisfaction to our many road users.”
Mike Notman, managing director of Ringway Jacobs, added: “We are delighted to be working with Central Bedfordshire Council on this prestigious contract. We are committed to establishing an open relationship based upon trust and integrity.
“We have built a reputation for assured delivery, forward thinking and innovative solutions. We will bring our experience of collaborative working to build upon the relationship already formed during mobilisation to develop an increasingly efficient and effective highways service to meet the residents’ needs.”
