Highways England has awarded its Specialist Professional & Technical Services 2 (SPaTS2) framework to a consortium comprising Amey Consulting and Capita. The Lot 1 of the advisory framework package is worth some £250 million.

The firms will provide technical advisory and consulting services to Highways England over the next four years to help deliver £27.4 billion of investment in the Strategic Road Network during road period two, running from 2020.

The consortium brings together a diverse range of organisations, capable of bringing the breadth and depth of expertise Highways England will need to ensure safer, smoother and more reliable journeys.

Alex Gilbert, managing director, Amey Consulting said: “We are delighted to have been awarded a place on the SPaTS 2 framework. It deepens our strong relationship with Highways England and presents an exciting opportunity to work together during RIS2, providing specialist consultancy and technical services to keep the country open for business.”
