Balfour wins £75M roads deal for 2016

Balfour Beatty has won a £75M roads scheme that won’t start until 2016 at the earliest.

The contractor was awarded the A63 Castle Street improvement project by the Highways Agency under an Early Contractor Involvement design and build deal.

The 1.5km scheme in the centre of Hull will convert a major interchange into a split-level junction. A dual carriageway will carry east-west traffic below north-south traffic in a new 400m-long underpass.

The scheme will also include two new bridges to link the south and north of the city for pedestrians, cyclists and disabled users.

Balfour will manage detailed design and development as well as assisting with statutory consultations for the improvements, with an aim to begin construction in 2016/17.

Balfour Beatty Construction Services UK chief executive Nicholas Pollard said: “This award to improve journey times on the main route through Hull builds upon our 20-year portfolio of work for the Highways Agency and our extensive experience of successful delivery of ECI contracts.”
