May Gurney £50m Harrow road maintenance deal

20 January 2012

May Gurney has won the London Borough of Harrow’s highways maintenance contract, valued at up to £50m.

The initial contract is for five years with an option to extend for a further two years. The previous supplier was Enterprise Mouchel. Nine companies were shortlisted to bid for the contract.

The contract 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.  As part of the contract, May Gurney will also maintain highways infrastructure assets belonging to London Underground and Overground, as well as watercourses belonging to the Environment Agency.

Harrow said the contract arrangements would save £2.6m on maintenance works over the first five years. Savings of £500,000/year are anticipated through a new process of commissioning May Gurney directly to carry out work. Where  May Gurney commissions other firms, this will be at no additional cost to the council. The new contract also promises to cut the cost of capital projects by over a third, which at current levels would mean a further £9m saving over five years.

 Councillor Thaya Idaikkadar, portfolio holder for property and major contracts  on Harrow Council, said: “We are defending or enhancing front line services by finding new, more efficient ways of working.”
