CVU works with both the London Boroughs and Transport for London (TfL)
The framework covers 23 services, including lighting and winter maintenance. Flexibility in the contracts means that boroughs are free to choose which elements will deliver the greatest benefits.
By using these contracts, up to £450m could be saved by avoiding expensive tendering costs, better working practices, coordinated working and better use of resources, plant and fleet.
Chair of London Councils’ Transport and Environment Committee Councillor Catherine West said: “The London Highways Alliance Contract will mean better roads for Londoners at a lower cost.”
Each framework which will run for eight years from April 2013 until the end of March 2021 will cover specific geographic areas of London.
