Balfour wins roundabout enhancement contracts worth ВЈ1.7m

Balfour Beatty Regional Civil Engineering (BBRCE) has won two contracts worth in excess of ВЈ1.7m for roundabout enhancements in the North East.

Both projects will be covered by BBRCE’s Newcastle Upon Tyne based Northern Region.

The first project, awarded by North Tyneside Council, is an improvement scheme at the Holystone Roundabout located at the A19/A191 junction.

Work will involve the widening of the carriageway to create a third lane, installation of traffic signals, the construction of a new footway on the inside of the roundabout along with all the associated temporary traffic and pedestrian management.

The second project, being carried out on behalf of the Highway Agency, is for improvements at the A1/A19 Seaton Burn Interchange and Roundabout in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
