2017 start for bypass project in Wales

WCN Editorial Team 5 Sep 2016 EUROPE TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Construction is set to start on the new A487 bypass project in North Wales in the second half of 2017.


Balfour Beatty and Jones Brothers (Ruthin) have been selected as the design and build contractors for the £90M project, with construction work due to commence following a public inquiry.

The 9.8km carriageway will stretch from Caernarfon to Bontnewydd, with work involving the construction of 22 structures including culverts and seven bridges.

The project — previously delayed due to wildlife concerns — has now progressed with the Welsh government issuing draft orders, and allowing individuals and organisations to submit objections to the route.

The project is currently anticipated to be complete in late 2019.
