AccordMP wins London road maintenance contract
Surrey, United Kingdom – Transport for London (TfL) has awarded AccordMP a contract for road maintenance and improvement in South London. The contract is worth an estimated £40 million per annum for the next six years with the option of a four-year extension. The contract covers routine highway maintenance, reactive operations and additional maintenance and improvement capital works as instructed by TfL.
The new arrangement will see TfL Road Network Management staff co-locating with providers in their main depots on a 24/7 basis.
Under the new contract TfL, as network operator, will deal directly with AccordMP regarding all works being carried out in South London, rather than the current arrangements which involve a consultant organisation acting as steward for TfL in each area.
AccordMP Limited is a strategic incorporated company, equally owned by Accord Operations Limited and Mouchel Parkman Services Limited. It has been set up to deliver integrated highways management and maintenance contracts for local authorities and the Highways Agency, and hence support clients to improve both local and strategic highways networks. The company is uniquely placed to offer benefits to clients in both sectors, by combining the experience of parent companies Accord and Mouchel Parkman and by capturing the synergies that can arise from working with both central and local government.
David Virden, managing director at AccordMP said: “The new contract arrangements pave the way for a much closer and more direct relationship with TfL – which is good news for the client, for the public and for the AccordMP team..”
