Surrey council awarded a more than $1.6 million contract to Grandview Blacktop Ltd. to fix potholes that are pocking the city’s roads.
The $1,669,556.91 contract was awarded Monday night, for annual pavement restoration, for a one-year term, with the expenditure limit set at $1.8 million.
Council has an option to extend the contract for up to two more years.
Scott Neuman, Surrey’s general manager of engineering, indicated in a corporate report that the work is to be completed by December.
The contract, Neuman explained, provides for supply and delivery of materials, equipment and labour for asphalt pothole repairs as well as “minor utility trench repairs on arterial, collector and local streets at various locations throughout the city.”
“The repairs,” his report reads, will “prolong the existing road structure, as well as provide smoother and quieter travel for both vehicle and cyclist movement along these roads.”
