£50m deal for May Gurney
May Gurney, the Norwich-based support services specialist, has won a new, long-term highways maintenance contract with Harrow Council worth up to £50 million.
Starting in April, the initial contract is for five years with an option to extend for a further two. The UK deal has been awarded in three ‘bundled services’ lots and includes maintenance of the council's key infrastructure assets - highways, carriageways, footways, streetlights, gullies, and watercourses.
May Gurney will also undertake maintenance of highways infrastructure assets belonging to London Underground and Overground, as well as watercourses belonging to the Environment Agency.
May Gurney is a support services company providing essential maintenance and enhancement services to clients in the public and regulated sectors, delivering services which are used by 24 million people every day. The company's current forward order book stands at £1.5 billion (including framework agreements but excluding extensions) and there is a strong pipeline of bidding opportunities and potential contract extensions worth in excess of £4 billion in the company's core markets.
May Gurney chief executive, Philip Fellowes-Prynne, said: "This new contract reinforces our position as one of the leading providers of highways maintenance services to local authorities in the UK. We continue to focus on providing innovative and cost effective solutions to help local authorities manage their essential infrastructure assets and look forward to building a strong and valuable relationship with Harrow Council."
