In October 2010 East Cheshire Council put out to tender works totally £147 million to improve the existing road infrastucture.

Atkins, Amey, EnterpriseMouchel and Ringway have all submitted PQQs for a contract which covers highways maintenance works and small civils schemes in Cheshire. In addition, a joint venture of BAM Nuttall and Capita are on the shortlist.

East Cheshire were looking for a partner that can deliver maintenance works for roads and pavements along with structural work, surfacing and other major schemes. The scope of the contract includes routine and reactive maintenance on carriageways and footways as well as structural repairs, surfacing and capital schemes. In a similar style to a MAC contract the successful bidder will also have to provide professional services such as design work.

In June 2011 Ringway Jacobs won the contract.

Their partnership with Cheshire East's highways service was approved, delivering savings of more than £1 million per year.

The company will take over the highways service provision, from current provider BAM Nuttall, on October 6 2011.

Cheshire East Council will retain an in-house team that will work closely with Ringway Jacobs to develop the partnership and oversee the running of the highways service.

Approval was given by Cabinet on June 6, 2011.
