Balfour JV wins US highway job

A Balfour Beatty joint venture has secured a £167 million deal to design and build the 281 North Toll highway project in Texas for the Alamo Regional Mobility Authority.

Balfour Beatty Infrastructure, the firm’s US civil engineering arm, has teamed up with Fluor to take on the job under the Cibolo Creek Infrastructure JV.

Work will cover building three new toll lanes plus a further 7.9 miles of non-toll roads.

Balfour Beatty chief executive Ian Tyler said: “There is a very substantial forward road building programme in Texas using a range of financing techniques and Balfour Beatty Infrastructure is very well placed to play a major part in the future.”

Work is set to start this autumn and is set run over four years.
