The UK Highways Agency has invited tenders for up to £560m in projects to carry out the temporary traffic management on Britain’s highways.

Around 50 companies are expected to be appointed by UK authorities to provide temporary traffic management services for a four-year period.

Under the projects, the selected companies will work for the design, installation, maintenance and removal of static temporary traffic management measures on motorways.

Construction of high-speed dual carriageways, traffic management of mobile lane closures and temporary traffic management on rural and urban roads are included in the scope of work.

The UK’s temporary traffic management on motorways and highways will be maintained under ten separate phases.

The agency has divided the projects into dozen separate packages, and set the deadline for receipt of tenders as 21 December.
