£32m highways scheme is awarded
Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK has been appointed by Cambridgeshire County Council on the King’s Dyke level crossing closure project.
The Ruthin-based family business won the tendering process for the scheme which is scheduled to complete in spring 2022.
Work will include constructing a new road and bridge over the Ely to Peterborough railway line crossing at King’s Dyke on the A605 near Whittlesey. The level crossing will subsequently be removed as part of the programme.
Jones Bros contracts director Geraint Thomas said: “We are aware how important this [scheme] is to the area and we are looking forward to starting work on site in due course.
“As with all Jones Bros projects, we will be aiming to boost the local economy during construction, with opportunities for local suppliers as well as recruitment of apprentices and experienced operators.”
Jones Bros has ensured Covid-19 measures are in place including site specific risk assessments, social distancing and suitable hygiene and welfare facilities.
The civil engineering firm was appointed following a re-tender process by the council.
