Liverpool launches £30m roads framework

Liverpool City Council has launched a four-year framework for the delivery of reactive highway works.

Subject to both the consent of the framework manager and to entering into an access agreement with the employer, the Liverpool city region’s other local authorities, namely Halton, St Helens, Knowsley, Sefton and Wirral will also be permitted to procure works and services under the framework, along with subsidiaries, affiliated or joint venture bodies the councils are involved in.

The framework comprises ten lots:

  • Lot 1: General civil engineering: 6 applicants progressing to invitation-to-tender stage, 3 to contract award,
  • Lot 2: Bridges and other structures: 5 to ITT stage, 3 to contract award
  • Lot 3: Drainage including gullies: 5 to ITT stage, 3 to contract award
  • Lot 4: Fencing and barriers: 5 to ITT stage, 3 to contract award
  • Lot 5: Road markings: 5 to ITT stage, 3 to contract award,
  • Lot 6: Street lighting and electrical works: 6 to ITT stage, 3 to contract award
  • Lot 7: Site investigation, surveys: 5 to ITT stage, 3 to contract award
  • Lot 8: Specialist surfacing: 5 to ITT stage, 3 to contract award
  • Lot 9: Traffic signs: 5 to ITT stage, 3 to contract award
  • Lot 10: Watercourses: 5 to ITT stage, 3 to contract award.

The framework will effectively replace the council’s previous contract with Amey, which was cancelled by mutual consent earlier this year. Many of the ‘softer’ services included in that have been taken in-house by the council, while St Helens’ existing framework has been utilised for some works in the interim period.

The council expects to be in a position to make its decision on final warding of framework positions by the end of January.
