HA advertises £280m Midlands M1 upgrade

Contractors are invited to bid for a £280 million roads deal to widen the M1 motorway for the Highways Agency.
The project is one of eight schemes planned by the Highways Agency to ease congestion on the motorway.

Work will cover the construction and maintenance of a 23km stretch from junction 25 to 28 in the east Midlands.

A winner is due to be picked in August next year and construction will start in April 2007 for a three years, followed by a year of maintenance works.

Up to five bidders will be invited to tender for the deal. Firms have until the end of November to express an interest.

A Costain and Mowlem joint venture bagged a £430 million deal to upgrade a stretch of the M1 motorway in southern England in September.

Alfred McAlpine, Mowlem, Nuttall, Costain, Birse and Balfour Beatty are understood to have prequalified for an initial £20 million scheme to widen the motorway between junctions 31 and 32, close to Sheffield.
