Costain wins £150m M6 Smart Motorway Contract

13 June 2018

The work will cover a stretch of the M6 in the North-west between J21a with the M62 near Warrington and J26 west of Wigan - This scheme will involve the installation of road-side technology and new infrastructure focussed on improving the driver experience. 

Costain will design and deliver smart motorway elements to increase capacity and reliability on the road - The contract was awarded under Highways England’s Collaborative Delivery Framework and should be complete by spring 2021. 

With works being tendering for across the country, hopefully this will lead to more contracts being awarded by Highways England and a general uplift in works being carried out across this sector! Everyone is hopeful of a busy end to 2019 after a sluggish start. We have recently been accepted onto Costain’s PSL for the supply of freelance and permanent staff, across the Water, Power and Highways sectors, so watch this space with regards to opportunities advertised!
