Balfour Beatty wins M4/M5 managed motorway contract for £77.6M

Contractor Balfour Beatty has today won a £77.6M managed motorway contract on the M4/M5 junction near Bristol.

Client the Highways Agency awarded the contract, which will be the first of its type in the South West of England.

Construction work is due to begin between January and March 2012, with the scheme opening to traffic in 2013-14.

Balfour Beatty said it would use a range of innovative technology, combined with new operating procedures such as hard shoulder running, to control and improve traffic flow and the bottleneck of congestion at the junction.
