Kier Charging for Costs Not Incurred

In some Highways England Areas, if the repair cost following Damage to Crown Property (DCP) is:

  • over £10,000, Highways England is billed by Kier and it is the Authority who pursues the insurer, fleet, haulier or driver for reimbursement of the outlay.
  • below £10,000 Kier are responsible for the bill; Highways England pays nothing and Kier must pursue the insurer etc. (Third-Party) for the money
