Britain’s roads and highways are essential pieces of infrastructure for connectivity, whether it be families across the country or communities across a river. However, it is also to keep the economy on track, providing routes for the delivery of goods and expertise so businesses can continue to prosper. Highways England’s Regional Delivery Partnership (RDP), of which Lot 1 is part of, is a new vision to modernise the road network.
Pell Frischmann looks forward to collaborating closely with Capita and Highways England, who have invested £9Bn into the RDP, working towards the same aim to provide expert safety, delivery and customer service.
Damian Kilburn, Pell Frischmann’s Highways and Transportation Sector Director, said “This is a huge win for Pell Frischmann, after almost 10 years, we again have a Highways England Major Projects framework contract as sole provider for the Midlands and Southwest for the next six years. The workload will provide varied and interesting projects, enabling us to showcase our skills and experience. I am looking forward to working with Highways England, our partners Capita and our supply chain partners including 4way Consulting and CJ Associates”.
