Connect Roads has awarded Balfour Beatty a £36m contract extension to its existing Managing Agent Contract (MAC) for the M1-A1 Link Road.

The extension will sees Balfour Beatty continue its operations and maintenance services until March 2026 on the 18-mile long strategic motorway between the M1 and M62 south and east of Leeds, and the A1(M) south of Wetherby.

The international infrastructure group acts as Connect Roads’ operator on the design, build, finance and operate (DBFO) concession for the link road and two other DBFO concessions, which Highways England awarded to Connect Roads in 1996.

Phil Clifton, Balfour Beatty’s highways director, major projects, said: ‘I’m delighted that we have been chosen to continue to maintain this vital route on behalf of Connect Roads; it is testament to our dedication to providing and maintaining a safe road network across Britain for road users, on behalf of Highways England.

‘This contract extension is another clear indication of the strength of Balfour Beatty’s proven highways asset management capabilities.’

Works undertaken by Balfour Beatty include network management, technical inspections, routine and cyclical maintenance, asset management and lifecycle maintenance, including pavement, structures, geotechnical, highway lighting and signs, vehicle restraint and road markings.
