Amey Consulting, in collaboration with Capita, has been appointed by Highways England to the Specialist Professional & Technical Services 2 (SPaTS2) framework. Securing a place on Lot 1 of the framework, Amey Consulting will provide technical advisory and consulting services to Highways England over the next four years to help them deliver £27.4bn of investment in the Strategic Road Network during road period two, running from 2020.
The consortium brings together a diverse range of organisations, capable of bringing the breadth and depth of expertise Highways England will need to ensure safer, smoother and more reliable journeys for the 4 million users that rely on its roads each day. The success builds on recent wins with Highways England as the design services consultant in Area 10, design partner on the A66 Northern TransPennine Upgrade and as their data science partner.
Alex Gilbert, Managing Director, Amey Consulting said: “We are delighted to have been awarded a place on the SPaTS 2 framework. It deepens our strong relationship with Highways England and presents an exciting opportunity to work together during RIS2, providing specialist consultancy and technical services to keep the country open for business.”
Simon Reeves, Director, Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure added: “We look forward to working with Amey Consulting to strengthen our existing relationship with Highways England, to further develop it through collaboration and innovation and ultimately support the realisation of their ambitions. Together, we bring a unique set of capabilities to Highways England through the combination of both businesses’ wide, varied and complimentary expertise in the Highways sector.”
