HTM | Shropshire presence continues as Kier Highways reward 2 years of excellence
For any company, winning a new contract is a proud day.
A strong, well-written bid resulting in a new scheme of works is a cause to celebrate. The talk has been talked, and the contract is in the bag. At that point, however, you still have to prove you can walk the walk.
Perhaps the only thing better than securing new works is re-securing work on an existing contract you’ve been carrying out already.
Performance levels can’t be embellished, capacity and capability cannot be estimated or projected. The proof is already in the pudding, and the awarding contractor already knows if you’re up to the job, and indeed, whether you truly can walk the walk.
Over the last 2 years, Highway Traffic Management (HTM) has been operating on behalf of Kier Highways in Shropshire. HTM is a tier 1 contractor for Kier Highways, undertaking a variety of work, from the stop and go traffic management for lining and tex banding, through to traffic lights and road closures for highway resurfacing and bridge repairs.
Additionally, HTM also provides traffic management for the Shropshire surface dressing programmes.
Walking the walk
It appears HTM has proven their capability, with the company now proud to announce an additional 2 years in Shropshire by virtue of a 24-month extension to their contract from Kier Highways.
By the end of the newly awarded 2-year term, HTM will have completed a total of 5 years in Shropshire.
Within the contract, HTM delivers both street works and high-speed schemes, and this will continue for the 2020-2022 term.
We spoke with HTM Commercial Director Marcus Casey about the re-awarding of this contract, and what it means for HTM:
“Being re-awarded this contract in Shropshire is a proud day for us and we look forward to continuing proving our delivery capabilities on a day to day basis.
“Our long-term relationship and collaboration with Kier Highways is one we’re very proud of, and we look forward to working with them further to deliver for Shropshire.”
