Welsh contractor Alun Griffiths has secured a role on the £70m dualling of a major link road in Worcestershire.
The Abergaveny-based firm has been chosen as project developer by Worcestershire County Council for phase four of its Worcester Southern Link Road programme, according to an OJEU notice.
The work aims to ease congestion on the A440 between Ketch and Powick roundabouts.
Worcestershire County Council began the search for contractors to carry out the design and construction for the project last October.
Phase four will be the final stage of the multi-million-pound link project, which spans 10 km in total.
It is the third role Alun Griffiths has landed on the £111m Worcester Southern Link Road programme.
In 2015 it picked up the contract for the £33m third phase, which included bridgeworks and dualling of 4 km of road.
It also picked up the £8m phase two section comprising improvement work to the Ketch roundabout and dualling of the A440.
Elsewhere the Welsh contractor won a place last month on the North and Mid Wales Trunk Road Agency’s £60m minor projects framework.
In March 2016 it emerged that Alun Griffiths had been replaced as a main contractor on a £315m motor racing track in south Wales, as it had decided to reduce its role.
Alun Griffiths and Worcester County Council have been contacted for comment.
