Topic Contracts

Date 09 Nov 2018

Galliford Try has successfully won two places on the Highways England Delivery Integration Partnership. The framework, which replaces the current Collaborative Delivery Framework, is worth a total of £8.7bn and will run for six years.

The places are both within 'Band B' for higher value schemes, on lot four in the south west which is valued at £800m alongside one other supplier and lot seven in the east of England which is valued at £2.8bn alongside two other suppliers.

Galliford Try has already been allocated two schemes through the new framework, one in each lot. The larger scheme is a package of six projects to improve the A47 corridor in Norfolk. In the south west, the company will undertake the dualling of the A303 between Sparkford and Ilchester in Somerset, one of three planned projects designed to improve the A303/A358 corridor.

Peter Truscott, Chief Executive of Galliford Try, said: "Highways is a key growth sector for our Infrastructure business so this appointment is particularly significant. We are currently partnered with Highways England under its Collaborative Delivery Framework and Construction Works framework and also a leading Smart Motorways partner. We are fully aligned with our client's ambition and strategic imperatives and pleased to be an integral part of its supply chain for years to come."
