After Hampshire CC's consortium with a private firm won the first 'super agency' contract for managing the upkeep of motorways and trunk roads, planning and transportation chairman Alan Lloyd said:

'Hampshire has been involved in the maintenance and management of the trunk road network in the county for over 50 years. It is proud of its reputation as a successful agent to the Department of Transport's Highways Agency.

'Although the county council is disappointed that the government decided to change arrangements which did serve the people of Hampshire well, we are delighted that under the new agency arrangements, being introduced in April 1997, it has won the opportunity to contribute its experience and expertise in a joint venture arrangement with the highly regarded engineering consultant Mott MacDonald.

'The county council is firm in its view that the blending of commercial skills, engineering prowess and network management experience, provided through this partnership between the private and public sectors, offers an unbeatable combination and association. It makes us capable of delivering, on behalf of the Highways Agency, the highest level of service to the general public and all road users of the new Area 3 motorway and trunk road network.

'It is good to know that Hampshire's long-standing involvement in the maintenance of its trunk road will continue and I am sure this must benefit both the Department of Transport and the local community.'
