North Midland Construction has won two contracts worth a total of £2.75 million on the A46 road widening scheme between Newark and Widmerpool in Nottinghamshire.
The Nottinghamshire-based contractor’s utilities division has secured a contract with Balfour Beatty - the main contractor on the Highways Agency scheme - to install new water mains as well as BT and Virgin Media ducts along the A46.
North Midland’s civil engineering division will also carry out drainage diversions at Flintham, near Newark. The work will involve using a special bore and the installation of 800 metres of new sewer pipework 4-5m below the existing A46 carriageway.
Work is due to begin this month and is expected to be completed within the next 12 months.
