FM Conway win Newham highways contracts worth £40m

FM Conway has been awarded two highways services contracts worth £40 million by the London Borough of Newham.

The contracts - one covering highway maintenance for the borough and the other for major roads improvement schemes - build on the existing 10-year partnership between Newham Council and FM Conway. Each have a potential value of £20 million over a four-year period.

The civil engineering contractor will help deliver planned highway maintenance and improvement works for Newham’s 419km of streets, including surfacing, civil engineering services, specialist road marking and drainage support.

James Tallon, term maintenance director at FM Conway, said: “These contract wins are testament to the benefits of our self-delivery approach. By using our own specialist teams, materials, plant and equipment to deliver projects, we are able to drive efficiencies for our customers while delivering a high-quality service for Newham’s residents and businesses.

“For the past ten years we have worked with Newham to support its highways infrastructure, delivering successful projects for the local community such as the £1.5 million public realm upgrade at Stratford Broadway, and we look forward to continuing to support the council and the public.”
