10 May 2018

Breedon Bow Highways Limited (“Breedon Bow”), a joint venture between Breedon Southern Limited and Thomas Bow Limited, has been awarded a Framework Contract by Highways England to provide road surfacing services in the Midlands and Eastern England.

The award is for one of two contractors to the framework, which is valued at approximately £42 million over four years, and represents the first time that Breedon has worked directly for Highways England on a major Framework Contract.  It forms part of Highways England’s strategic business plan, which includes £11 billion of capital funding between 2015 and 2020.

Under the terms of the contract Breedon will carry out Bituminous and Cement Bound Granular Mixtures surfacing in partnership with Nottingham-based contractor Thomas Bow, which brings significant experience of highway and infrastructure surfacing.

The award covers the Highways England Network Areas 6 to 9, comprising the West Midlands, East Midlands and East Anglia.  Breedon will supply the joint venture with the materials needed under the contract, from its nine asphalt plants in Central and East England.

Commenting on the award Mike Pearce, Chief Executive of Breedon Southern Limited, said: “We’re delighted to have won our first major framework contract with Highways England, in partnership with Thomas Bow, with whom we have had a successful working relationship over many years.  It marks a significant milestone in the development of Breedon Group’s business and will provide us for the first time with direct experience of working on Highways England’s network.”
