The framework will be divided into two lots with project values of up to £1.5 million or more, to include general civil engineering works and new highways works as follows: 

General civil engineering works 

  • Highway and junction improvements;  
  • Traffic signal installation and improvements;  
  • Drainage works;  
  • Structural improvements and remedial works;  
  • Major resurfacing and surface treatment works.  

New highways works  

  • Public transport infrastructure and provision; 
  • Active travel schemes; · 
  • Public realm;  
  • Highways structures improvements;  
  • Highways and junction realignments and reconfiguration works. 

Liverpool City Council currently intends to appoint up to four suppliers onto each lot. 

Prospective firms are required to provide responses to a pre-market engagement document by no later than 14 May. 

It is estimated the framework will run for a period of up to four years from late January 2025.  

“The pre-market engagement exercise is intended to provide a platform for potential suppliers to comment and feed into the council’s procurement processes,” a prior information notice reads.  

“This early engagement is aimed at ensuring a process that best enables suppliers to provide solutions that meet the council’s requirements and objectives for this important framework.”
