Costain wins £110M roads deal


Costain has won a £110 million road building deal in the North West.

The firm was awarded an early contractor involvement (ECI) contract by Lancashire County Council for the Preston Western Distributor and associated link roads.

The project will see a 4km dual carriageway created to link the A583/A584 to the M55, along with link roads to new housing areas at Cottam and North West Preston.

The Preston Western Distributor scheme is being funded by the devolution deal struck between the government and the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership.

Costain will support the council through the statutory process, including planning and design development prior to project delivery.

Work will start immediately, with main construction scheduled to take place from 2017 to 2019.

Costain chief executive Andrew Wyllie said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this ECI contract which further underlines our position as a market leader in the delivery of critical highways schemes which support regional economic growth.”
