From September 26, Amey will repair and maintain around 20,000 miles of sewer pipe which transports waste water from nearly two million homes to over 600 waste water treatment works in the area.

The contract award will see Amey expand its presence in the North of England and build upon its existing relationship with Yorkshire Water, having worked with them for five years. The service Amey will provide in the new contract is in addition to its current Yorkshire Water Framework which delivers non infrastructure projects in the region.

The new contract to repair and maintain the waste water network is designed to deliver the best possible service for customers at the best possible price. The contract, which runs until April 2020, has the option to be extended for a further five years.

Amey already has a strong presence in the region through infrastructure services such as delivering highways maintenance and street lighting on behalf of Calderdale Council and Wakefield Council. Through the Building Schools for the Future initiative, Amey also delivers facilities management and IT services in Bradford.
