Ringway Jacobs Secures Full Five-Year Extension to Essex County Council Integrated Highway Partnership
Ringway Jacobs, the leading integrated highways service provider to U.K. local authorities, has secured a five-year extension to its current 10-year highway network management contract with Essex County Council (ECC).
Essex County Council appointed Ringway Jacobs in 2012 to maintain and improve its highway network. Since then Ringway Jacobs has effectively managed and enhanced the county’s roads and footways, improved safety across the network and helped Essex County Council achieve the accolade of ‘Transport Local Authority of the Year’ in 2017.
Ringway Jacobs is formed of two equal shareholders, Jacobs and Eurovia UK. The working relationship goes back to 1992, but was formalized with the creation of Ringway Jacobs in 2005. Since then, Ringway Jacobs has provided end-to-end services to multiple local authorities across the U.K., working in collaboration with clients and suppliers, delivering tailored services and forward-thinking solutions at a low cost to clients.
Speaking about the extension, Jacobs People & Places Solutions Senior Vice President and General Manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa Donald Morrison said: “Ringways Jacobs is an incredibly important partnership for Jacobs and we are pleased that we can continue to provide Essex County Council with a fully integrated service, bringing our expertise and passion for technological and digital innovation to the table to help solve the biggest challenges."
“I’d like to thank the council for continuing to place its faith in us,” added Ringway Jacobs Managing Director Mike O’Neill. “The extension validates our integrated partnership model: local authorities like Essex County Council see that longer-term, closely-knit integrated partnerships play a key role in maximizing value for local highways, people and place."
