Taylor Woodrow Wins a Place on the Highways England Regional Delivery Partnership

Taylor Woodrow has secured a place on Highways Englands Regional Delivery Partnership (RDP) to design and build major highways schemes in the South West over the next six years. Together with the other Delivery Integration Partners, Taylor Woodrow will be working with Highways England to deliver a pipeline of projects from early design stages through to completion and handover.

Over the six-year period the South West region will bring 400m of work for Taylor Woodrow and our supply chain. The first scheme will be the A30 between Chiverton and Carland Cross, which remains the only stretch of single carriageway on the A30 between Camborne and the M5 at Exeter. The proposed A30 scheme, programmed to start in early 2020, will provide 14km of high quality rural, offline dual two-lane carriageways with the existing A30 being retained, de trunked, and handed over to the local authority.

Taylor Woodrow and our designers Arup and Ramboll will build on existing working relationships, where we have been working closely together in the South West over the past three years. Taylor Woodrow welcomes the opportunity to continue working in the South West with Highways England, drawing on our experiences and those of the wider VINCI group. The schemes will improve the strategic road network, drive the economy and support the wider transport network.

Peter Whitman, Taylor Woodrows Highways Sector Director said, 'We are delighted to be awarded a place on the Regional Delivery Partnership which will build upon our work on the Collaborative Delivery Framework over the past 4 years, and bring valuable lessons learnt to this significant programme of works. It is an exciting prospect to be working with Highways England and the other Delivery Integration Partners. Together we will introduce a step change in the way clients and contractors work together to improve safety outcomes and drive efficiency to ultimately benefit customers and local communities.'
