Lafarge Tarmac Contracting has been working in partnership with both LCC and Leicestershire Highways Organisation (LHO) on the LHWA since the beginning of 2008. As part of our works with LHWA we have sponsored and worked on many community based projects.
Tarmac Contracting emerged as an operation dedicated to the many and varied disciplines in road maintenance contracting. Our highway term maintenance teams build on the knowledge and expertise that has become part and parcel of what we do.
By working with you, discussing your needs, particular circumstances and unique requirements, we can formulate an integrated programme of maintenance. We achieve this by using the full extent of our know-how, combining it with our huge product range and matching the solutions most appropriate to your requirements. By sharing our capabilities and resources within your organisation, we can deliver successful, strategic contracts.
We partner with a number of Local Authorities delivering highways maintenance solutions for them on a daily basis. The work we carry out on behalf of these authorities backs up our ‘no-job too small’ attitude and ranges from surfacing of highways to gritting roads during winter periods.

Lafarge Tarmac Contracting have been working in partnership with both Leicestershire County Council (LCC) and Leicestershire Highways Organisation (LHO) on the LHWA since the beginning of 2008. The LHWA contract was for an initial four year period with the opportunity of 3 one year extension periods, the second of which commences in April 2014.
Having worked in partnership with Leicestershire County Council since 2008, the client approached us for a sustainable solution to road construction that minimised traffic movements, caused less disruption and contributed to CO2 savings.
Working alongside KaarbonTech, who provide data collection, maintenance advice and flood risk analysis, an initial data collection exercise was carried out within the existing costs, over 2 years from 2013-15 so that a ‘needs based’ flexible cleaning regime could be adopted.
With the likelihood of reductions between 20-30% in highway budgets over the next few years, we were met with a growing requirement from our client to provide a service that is business effective, demonstrates value for money and gives us a consistent manageable platform that meets the requirements of the contract. In order to achieve this we needed to ensure that we had the right business structure in place to take the business forward and remain competitive.
