Galliford Try wins £67M smart motorway job

orange smart motorway

Galliford Try has won a £67M contract to design and construct a smart motorway scheme on the M56 between junctions 6 and 8.

The project will include upgrading pavements, barriers and drainage as well as installation of gantries, emergency refuge areas and technical equipment along the 6.5km stretch of road between north-east Cheshire and Manchester Airport.

Work is scheduled to start on site next spring and is expected to take about 12 months to finish. 

Galliford Try Highways managing director Duncan Elliot said: “We’re delighted for this opportunity to further strengthen our relationship with and commitment to Highways England as a leading and critically important client.

“Highways is the key growth sector for Galliford Try infrastructure.”

Galliford Try has recently completed a smart motorways scheme on the M1 in Northamptonshire and is involved in a similar scheme on the same motorway in the East Midlands.
