The £400k commission has been awarded under the SPaTS Lot 1 Framework and follows on from a pilot study WSP completed for Highways England in 2017.
Work by the engineering consultancy, WSP, began in February 2018 and they will continue to undertake the inspections and audits through until 2021.
Stephen Pottle, WSP Work Package Director said: “This is a fantastic win which builds on the existing strong relationship we have with Highways England. The work we will carry out is part of Highways England’s drive to continuously improve all aspects of the work they commission and deliver.
“It has the potential not only to improve the already high quality of construction taking place now, but could also have a significant impact on the way that Highways England procure and manage construction activities in the future.”
