Ringway accelerates to Milton Keynes roads deal


Ringway Infrastructure Services has secured a second term as roads maintenance and response contractor in Milton Keynes.

The company, part of Vinci subsidiary Eurovia UK, will continue delivering highways services in the Buckinghamshire city for at least another eight years.

Ringway became Milton Keynes City Council’s service delivery partner in 2014. The latest deal, which has a two-year extension clause, could take it to 2034.

Worth about £21m per year, the new contract will begin on 1 September this year and cover more than 1,500km of local roads.

The firm will also be responsible for looking after 1,135km of footways, 346km of dedicated cycleways and more than 1m square metres of verges.

The deal also covers 763 bridges and other structures, 54,400 streetlights and 41 traffic signals as well as 72,000 drainage assets and 114,000 trees.

Ringway will undertake routine, reactive and cyclical highway maintenance along with emergency response, winter and abnormal weather operations.

It will also carry out major schemes such as junction improvements, public realm projects, safety and traffic management and the maintenance of highways electrical assets.

Ringway managing director Mitesh Solanki said: “We employ local people and work with local partners and we look forward to strengthening our partnerships, continuing to transform services for the community.”

Stuart Proffitt, director for environment and property at Milton Keynes City Council, said: “The authority undertook an extensive and rigorous tender process to ensure that we got the best provider for the city and Ringway met our key critical criteria for value, efficiency and quality.

“Residents will see an improved highway service in this new contract, including improved customer interfaces, the use of new technology and innovation like AI, a green fleet of vehicles and enhanced community engagement.”
