Derbyshire spends big on both 'strategic and non strategic' works

Derbyshire County Council has awarded Aggregate Industries a contract worth £6.5m to carry out resurfacing work over the next year and is seeking bidders for further work worth a total of £24m.

Aggregate Industries will deliver the strategic surfacing contract, which the council said will cover schemes over £100,000 and will run from May until the end of March 2023.

The contract covers the whole county (excluding Derby City area) and will include resurfacing, traffic management, road studding and road markings (lining and associated works).

Thomas Edgcumbe (pictured), managing director of Aggregate Industries’ newly created Surfacing Solutions division, said: ‘We are delighted to have been awarded the 2022-23 carriageway surfacing works on the Strategic Roads Resurfacing Framework for Derbyshire County Council.

‘This is a significant project and we look forward to working in partnership with Derbyshire County Council to deliver the comprehensive programme of works over the next 12 months. Together we will embrace the latest innovations, focusing on sustainability and CO2 reduction while ensuring we maximise the positive impact and social value for the local residents and communities of Derbyshire.’

The contract award notice gives the value of the work as £6.5m, with a total of seven tenders having been received.

The council also advertised earlier this month for a non-strategic resurfacing framework, also to run from May until the end of March 2023 but with the option to extend on an annual basis for a total of four years.

The non-strategic framework covers the same types of work but for schemes valued at less than £100,000. The total value of works under the framework appear to have roughly the same annual value, with an overall value of £24m.

The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 9am on 16 May, with tenders opened five minutes later.
