£36m boost for North Linconshire economy with construction and highways investments


£36m boost for economy with construction and highways investments.

Since 2015 the authority says it has pumped the cash into plans that have helped provide employment – all through its nationally recognised procurement framework.

The council awarded the modern integrated framework arrangement for the delivery of all council construction and highways related work in June 2014.

A number of highways and constructions projects have benefited from the £36m investment including road maintenance schemes, school improvements and other essential facilities for local communities.

In addition to delivering council projects, the framework requires contractors to consider and provide opportunities for the community. Some of the highlights have included:

G S Kelsey took on two apprentices from North Lindsey College. It also provided site visits and question and answer sessions at Holme Valley Primary School for the pupils
