Bam and Morgan Sindall JV in M27 smart motorway win

orange smart motorway

A Bam Nuttall/Morgan Sindall JV has won a multi-million pound contract on the M27 smart motorways programme, New Civil Engineer understands.

An official contract announcement is expected to be made early next year, which will include details on what it covers. Highways England says the improvements will cost £244M.

The M27 scheme involves converting a section of the motorway’s hard shoulder between Junction 4 at the M3 interchange and Junction 11 at Fareham into a permanent lane, making it a four-lane, smart motorway.

Work will start between next year and 2019, and will include new electronic information signs on gantries to manage traffic flow better.

A portion of Highways England’s £30bn investment for its next road investment strategy (RIS2) running from 2020-2025 will go towards rolling out its smart motorways programme across England.

Highways England, Bam Nuttall and Morgan Sindall have been contacted for comment.
