Balfour Beatty and Jones Bros complete Welsh bypass ahead of schedule

A joint venture of contractors Balfour Beatty and Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK has completed the new £35M A487 Porthmadog, Minffordd and Tremadog bypass in Wales on budget and ahead of schedule.

The 5.3km bypass, built for the Welsh Government, has three junctions, three roundabouts and eight bridges and will improve journey times, ease congestion and provide environmental and safety benefits. The bridges include a landmark three span viaduct over the environmentally sensitive Glaslyn estuary.

“It was a complex project with extensive environmental considerations, works adjacent to four railway lines and over the Glaslyn estuary,” said joint venture project manager Wyn Daniels.
