17/00124 - Highway Term Maintenance Contract and Road Asset Renewal Contract

KCC is the statutory Authority responsible for the delivery of highways services to Kent residents. Many of these services are delivered through a Highways Term Maintenance Contract (HTMC) with AMEY. The current contract expires in August 2018. Alongside this, the Machine Resurfacing Contract (MRC) provided by Eurovia is also due to end in June 2018. Following a commissioning review of these services, it is proposed to extend the HTMC for a period of two years and to re-procure the MRC.


Note: Due to a change of Cabinet Member since the publication of the proposed decision in December 2017, the Leader and Cabinet Member for Traded Services and Health Reform took the decision. This change will be reflected in the signed Record of Decision.

Financial implications: The recommended option is within the projected budgets set out in the Medium Term Financial Plan (MTFP).

Equalities implications: An Equalities Impact Assessment has been carried out and no implications for extending the HTMC and procuring the MRC have been identified.
