A2300 scheme: capital allocation and authority to submit business case and award contract

The Department for Transport (DfT) has provided funding from the Local Growth Fund to assist with the design and development of a full business case for the A2300 scheme following the submission of an outline business case by the County Council in June 2018 (decision HI03 18/19). The same decision delegated authority to the Director of Highways & Transport to tender, procure and award the services of Design & Build and Contract Administration from the approved list of contractors on the Highways and Transport Frameworks.


In November 2018, the Director of Highways and Transport awarded the design contract to Jackson Civil Engineering Limited (decision OKD13 18/19) which enabled a detailed design for the scheme to be completed and the development of a full business case.


The submission and approval of the full business case will enable the remaining LGF to be secured from the DfT as a contribution towards the construction of the scheme.
