FM Conway scoops £40m of work in Newham


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

Worth a potential value of £20m each over a four-year period, the two contracts cover highway maintenance for the borough and major roads improvement schemes.

FM Conway has been tasked with helping 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 deals 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.'

Cllr 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 said it now holds long-term maintenance contracts with around half of London’s boroughs, spanning 70% of the geographic area of Greater London and is also a key delivery partner for Transport for London.
