Costain wins £59M highways contract

Costain has won a £59M highways contract to build a section of dual carriageway in Wales.

Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council awarded the contract to build 4.3km of access road from the M4 into the town.

It will go from junction 38 on the motorway into Port Talbot and the docks.

The plans, part of the Port Talbot Peripheral Distributor Road (PDR) project, will also see the completion of the link to the M4’s junction 42 and west Wales.

There will also be a bridge built over the Swansea to London railway under the PDR plans – as well as a new entrance for Port Talbot Tata Steelworks.

“We are delighted to have been awarded this contract for Port Talbot which again underlines our position as a market leader in the construction and maintenance of highways in the UK,” said Costain chief executive Andrew Wyllie.
