Dear Highways Agency,

Under the freedom of information act I wish to know who are the
main suppliers and subcontractors currently heavily involved on
projects with the highways nationally- I would also like to know
which branch and person is your main point of contact? I would also
like this list in order of spend and if possible contact email. I

Dear Mr Simpson,

I am writing to confirm that we have now completed our search for the information, which you requested on 22nd November.

The Highways Agency does not hold a central register of all the main suppliers and subcontractors currently involved on projects with the highways nationally. We have estimated that the cost of compiling your request will exceed £600. Section 12 of the Act does not oblige us to comply with requests if they exceed this limit.

I attach a link to the information which has been provided relating to the amount paid by the Highways Agency since 1 April 2009.


In keeping with the spirit and effect of the legislation, all information is assumed to be releasable to the public unless exempt. We will, therefore, be releasing to the public the information you requested, together with any related information that will provide a key to its wider context via our website: http://www.highways.gov.uk/

If you require a print copy, please phone the Highways Agency Information Line on 0300 123 5000; or e-mail [Highways Agency request email] . You should contact me if you wish to complain.

If you are unhappy with the way we have handled your request you may ask for an internal review. Our internal review process is available at http://www.highways.gov.uk/foiresponses/....

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
Information Commissioner's Office
Wycliffe House
Water Lane

If you have any queries about this response, please contact me.

Yours sincerely

David Maher
