Following the success of a previous collaboration, West Berkshire Council has awarded VolkerHighways a seven year public realm contract, worth €12,7 million per year. The contract will begin on 1st October 2016 and will provide highways, bridges and lighting maintenance services throughout the district. The work will cover some 1,278 km of urban and rural highway network.
Working with the Council’s Highways and Transport department, the VolkerHighways team will inspect and maintain the roads, street lights and pavements. They will also undertake improvement schemes, salt the roads and provide a full emergency response service. VolkerHighways has delivered many successful collaborations with West Berkshire Council in recent years. Since July 2015, the team has been working on a €9,1 million project to upgrade over 10.000 of the district's street lights with energy efficient LED lamps.
