Date 13 Oct 2017

Galliford Try has secured a place on all eight lots of the new Highways & Infrastructure Construction Works framework being led by Manchester City Council.

Ten district councils from the region will be able to utilise the framework for both construct only as well as design and construct projects in value bands ranging from up to £500,000 to over £5m.

The total value of the framework is approximately £200m and it will operate for four years. The work relates mainly to highways projects but will also include earthworks, bridge construction and site clearance. Specific early schemes include the Manchester and Salford Inner Relief Route, a project worth about £7m to be delivered on behalf of Manchester and Salford City Councils.

Bob Gibbon, Managing Director of the Highways business unit within Galliford Try’s Infrastructure division, said: “We are delighted to be appointed to this framework. We have worked on highways schemes across the north-west for many years. This award is an ideal opportunity to further develop our presence and enable our clients and road users to benefit from our experience.”
