The contract between Ringway Infrastructure Services (RIS) and MK Council has been extended by another year following a unanimous decision at full council on 6 March 2018.


Ringway are the service provider for all highway work across the MK borough – the contract is potentially worth up to £200m over the maximum period of 10 years.


The original contract was awarded to Ringway after a tender process and began in April 2014 for seven years with the possibility of extending this to a maximum of 10 years after a review.


This one year extension has been awarded based on the high level of satisfaction with the maintenance of the road network, gritting services, street lighting and other works that Ringway carry out on behalf of the council.


The successful partnership with MK Council was acknowledged recently by BSi (British Standards Institution) who awarded Ringway the ISO 44001 Collaborative Business Relationship Management Systems accreditation. This award recognises very high standards of working practices between a service provider and a client.


Duncan Sharkey, Director of Place at MK Council said, “The working relationship between Ringway and MK Council has gone from strength to strength so I’m delighted that the contract has been extended by another year up to 2022.”


John Nicholson, Regional Director at Ringway added, “Ringway are extremely proud of the MK contract, the success is about the commitment to perform to a very high standard an approach that fully supports the communication and culture approach to all stakeholders in Milton Keynes”.
