The Pavement Delivery Framework covers materials, plant and labour costs for road resurfacing and construction works for National Highways’ Operations Division.  

The framework, now in its third issue, is split between nine lots across a 4,500-mile network. 

Four of the suppliers are SMEs, accounting for more than £100 million of the total anticipated spend.

  • Associated Asphalt Contracting  
  • Breedon Colas  
  • DSD Construction  
  • Eurovia Infrastructure  
  • FM Conway  
  • Galliford Try Construction  
  • Hailsham Roadways Construction  
  • Hanson Contracting 
  • Multipave NW  
  • Tarmac Trading  
  • Tripod Crest  

Firms have also committed to annual carbon reduction strategies within the timeframe of the contract. 

A warm mix asphalt will be used on the job, delivering up to 15% carbon savings per tonne. It is also more durable and quicker to lay.
