FM Conway secures major highways contracts with Newham

Infrastructure services company FM Conway has been awarded two highways services contracts by the London Borough of Newham, together worth up to £40m.  

The two contracts have a potential value of £20m each over a four-year period, covering highway maintenance for the borough and major roads improvement schemes respectively. Under the terms of the deals, FM Conway will help to deliver planned highway maintenance and improvement works for Newham’s 419km of streets, including surfacing, civil engineering services, specialist road marking and drainage support. The new contracts build on the existing ten-year partnership between Newham Council and FM Conway.

James Tallon, term maintenance director at FM Conway, said: “These contract wins are testament to the benefits of our self-delivery approach.  By using our own specialist teams, materials, plant and equipment to deliver projects, we are able to drive efficiencies for our customers while delivering a high-quality service for Newham’s residents and businesses.

“For the past ten years we have worked with Newham to support its highways infrastructure, delivering successful projects for the local community such as the £1.5m public realm upgrade at Stratford Broadway, and we look forward to continuing to support the council and the public.” 

Patrick Murphy, mayoral adviser on the environment at the London Borough of Newham, said: “We are confident that FM Conway will support an efficient approach to maintaining and improving Newham’s road network to meet the needs of local people and business.”

FM Conway holds long-term maintenance contracts with around half of London’s boroughs, spanning 70% of the geographic area of Greater London. FM Conway is also a key delivery partner for Transport for London and works with a range of private sector clients.
