Osborne Bag Share of Highways England £60m Road Maintenance Programme
Highways England has awarded more than £60m of road maintenance work in the east of England.
Osborne is one of four contractors sharing the load, which was awarded via the collaborative delivery framework (CDF). The work includes resurfacing, safety barrier and lighting upgrades, drainage maintenance and repairs, and new signs and road markings.
Osborne has been awarded the package to carry out the maintenance on A11, A12 and A14 (Suffolk), A120 and the structures on all routes (except A47).
The work, which is all being carried out between now and next summer, is part of Highways England’s commitment to improve safety and ensure better journeys across the East region’s busiest roads. It will be carried out in phases across different roads to minimise its impact on people’s journeys.
Highways England regional Capital Delivery Team Leader Aran Nugent said:
“This work will improve safety and provide smoother journeys for the millions of drivers that use our road network across the East of England every day. We care about drivers’ journeys and we understand that roadworks can cause some disruption for drivers and local residents, so we have planned the work carefully and closely with local authorities, local parishes and other transport services to reduce its impact as much as we can. While we are carrying out this essential work, I would urge motorists to plan their journeys ahead and allow extra time where needed.”
The other contractors who have been awarded the work are Interserve, VolkerFitzpatrick and Graham Construction.
