The Reasons are,


For the provision of essential street lighting annual inspection and maintenance service on Salford’s Highways Network, supporting the Council’s statutory obligations to maintain the safety and integrity of the highway.


Funding for the programme of work will come from the revenue budget. The annual value of works to be delivered through this contract is estimated at £80,000 per annum and there is an approved Highways revenue budget in place, to directly support the award of a contract to this value.
