Decision to Conclude the Award of a Contract for the Provision of Highway Improvements at M5 Junction 25

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Cabinet:


  1. Agreed to award a contract for highway improvements and associated works at M5 Junction 25 to the supplier identified in Appendix A, following a competitive process.  The award will be subject to confirmation of the funding contribution from the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership.


  1. Agreed to underwrite up to £0.536m from the capital programme that may be the result of the reduction in LEP contribution to the scheme.


  1. Agrees the case for exempt information for Appendix A to be treated in confidence, as public disclosure of the commercially sensitive data contained within would prejudice the Council’s position in ensuring competitiveness of future tender processes.


The County Council reserves the right to not proceed with the award of a contract should new information come to light during the standstill period and/or before entering into a contract. In this instance, it is recommended that the ECI Commissioning Director and the Director of Corporate Affairs be given joint delegated authority to take any necessary action in relation to the conclusion of the contract to protect the Council interests - this could include a decision not to enter into a contract and go back out to market.
