PTS have been awarded two major contracts by National Highways

It’s time for fantastic PTS contract news!

PTS have been awarded two major contracts by National Highways (formerly Highways England) for the provision of Technical Surveys and Testing (TST). These new TST contracts for pavements have been split into intrusive and non-intrusive covering pavement engineering services such as Coring, Deflectograph, GPR, FWD, materials testing and more.

PTS have been awarded contracts for the two northern regions in both categories obtaining the maximum possible award. The two northern regions include Area’s 10, 12, 13 & 14 and cover all motorway and major A-roads from the Scottish border to Stoke-on-Trent in the North West and from the Scottish borders to Sheffield in the North East.

Peter Wallace, Chief Operating Officer, has commented: “This is a massive achievement for us and underlines the commitment from National Highways to support and develop UK SME’s. My thanks go to not only those involved with the tender submission but to all our staff, as it has been through their hard work, professionalism, and commitment over the past 20 years, that we have been able to grow our capabilities, which in turn has enabled us to be in a strong position to qualify and bid for this size of contract.

Both these contracts run for a period of 7 years which is the first time we have had this guarantee of pipeline work. This now provides us with the platform to invest in resources, equipment, and technology over the coming months and years, which will ensure we stay at the forefront of pavement testing, cementing our position as the UK’s leading provider of infrastructure surveys and pavement engineering services.”
