Ringway Jacobs’ new contract with Cheshire East Council begins

Cheshire East Council’s 15 year Integrated Highways Maintenance contract with Ringway Jacobs began on 4 October 2018. 

The decision to award the contract to Ringway Jacobs was confirmed at Cheshire East Council’s Full Cabinet Meeting in June, following a rigorous procurement exercise. 

Ringway Jacobs has delivered the highway service in Cheshire East since 2011. During this time, they have secured over £150 million of additional funding for Cheshire East’s roads and have received industry recognition for collaboration and asset management. They have also supported the local community by employing 31 apprentices and have used local companies to help deliver the work.

Ringway Jacobs is committed to delivering customer satisfaction, value for money and improve network condition. The new contract is worth around £600 million over the 15 years and will see Cheshire East Council and Ringway Jacobs jointly investing in new premises and depots.

Mike O’Neill, Managing Director of Ringway Jacobs said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious contract and to continue to work with Cheshire East Council. We have delivered an improved, modernised service focused on the customer, localism, effectiveness and efficiency over the past seven years and by re-securing the contract for another fifteen years, we can continue this legacy and deliver an enhanced, innovative, industry leading service for the people of Cheshire East.”
