Bids open for £40m Manchester roads framework
Manchester City Council has launched the search for contractors to bid for a £40m roads framework, largely within the city centre but also across the wider city region.
The framework would see four contractors selected for the two-year programme, which is primarily for the resurfacing of carriageways.
The works involve the milling off and resurfacing of roads, as well as lining, footway and drainage repairs, and associated ironwork adjustments.
Many authorities across the region have taken advantage of quieter roads during the coronavirus lockdown to implement roadworks.
According to tender documents, the framework would largely be focused on schemes within the city centre, although some projects may take place within other parts of Greater Manchester.
The council is using local authority procurement portal The Chest to receive tender applications. Bidders have until 25 May to apply.
