Delivering major highway schemes to help keep the public moving

Highways projects can often be long, complex and costly schemes which many local authorities can struggle to manage all the different aspects effectively.

Through our extensive network of qualified and experienced in-house engineers and construction professionals, we can design, construct and supervise highways projects of all sizes and complexities across the UK.

Our highly skilled highways team currently provides a full suite of services to local authorities, ranging from major projects such as junction improvements, new roads and bridges; to smaller developments such as traffic calming, road safety schemes and pedestrian and cycle schemes.

We can provide street lighting redevelopments to local highway authority department, saving councils’ money and energy while helping improve community safety. Or deliver street lighting improvement programmes for university campuses, hospitals, parks and schools.

“The successful delivery of a major highways project has had an instant positive impact on the Authority’s highway network. The scheme has been challenging and complex but was delivered with minimal disruption to the travelling public. The benefits to all highway users can clearly be seen.” Mark Newlands, Highway and Infrastructure Manager at North Tyneside Council

A flexible approach

Our pick and mix style of service delivery means that councils can ensure their needs are met throughout the duration of the project and schemes can be completed effectively to ensure residents do not face lengthy and unnecessary delays.
