Bam/Morgan Sindall scoop £35M M1 job

A joint venture of Bam Nuttall and Morgan Sindall has secured a £35M deal to work on the M1.

The team, known as bmJV, was awarded a barrier renewal works package for junction 16 to 19 of the North-South motorway. 

Awarded through the Highways Agency’s National Major Projects Framework, the scheme will replace barriers that have completed their life, and allow a future smart motorway scheme.

More than 19km of existing steel safety barrier will be replaced with a slip-formed concrete barrier.

The hard shoulder will also be strengthened and stabilised to accommodate new drainage and communication systems in the central reserve.

Gary Crisp, highways director at bmJV, said: “We are delighted to be continuing our collaborative partnership with the Highways Agency to improve the existing road network and shorten journey times for road users.”

Work is due to start this month and complete in June 2015.
