INFRASTRUCTURE group Balfour Beatty today announced that it has been awarded a five-year extension to its contract with Yorkshire Water, worth around £70m.

Under the extended contract, which runs from 2015 to 2020, Balfour Beatty will continue to upgrade the water network, replacing mains and relining old mains.

“We are delighted that our long relationship with Yorkshire Water will continue into the next AMP cycle,” said chief executive Andrew McNaughton.

“This is an important time for our clients in the water sector as they face more challenging regulatory requirements, and we are committed to supporting their objectives through continued investment in new technology and the delivery of exceptional service.”
