Abstract

SWTRA has a statutory duty to maintain highways and associated structures within its area so that they are safe for use and fit for purpose. Whilst the Welsh Government is the Highway Authority for trunk roads in Wales, the day to day operation and management of the network is undertaken through delegation to SWTRA, managed and administered by Neath Port Talbot Council on the Welsh Government's behalf. The current SWTRA geographic boundary lies between the Severn Bridge in the East, Milford Haven in the West and extends northwards, through Fishguard as far as the Ceredigion County boundary, Carmarthen, Llandeilo, Llandovery, Merthyr Tydfil, Abergavenny and Monmouth. This framework is for maintenance and improvement works to highways and structures and all related assets including the soft estate and trunk road and motorway depots for three individual regions of the SWTRA area, namely, the Eastern, Central and Western regions. In addition to the Council and SWTRA, the following local authorities also have the ability to utilise the Framework: - Carmarthenshire County Council - Monmouthshire County Council CPV: 45220000, 45220000, 45233000, 45233300, 45340000, 50232000, 45220000, 45233000, 45233300, 45340000, 50232000, 45220000, 45233000, 45233300, 45340000, 50232000.
