The Mick George Group have been appointed for its Bulk Earthworks services on the £60m A11 scheme in Norfolk.
Mick George Contracting Land Another Major Highways Package
Having recently played a significant role in the successful delivery of Highway Infrastructure, most notably the M1 Smart-Motorway (Northamptonshire), A14 (Cambridgeshire) and Gedling Access Road (Nottinghamshire), Mick George Contracting continues its ascendency within the sector, having been appointed for its Earthworks services on the £60m A11 scheme in Norfolk.
Working in conjunction with Morgan Sindall and National Highways, the project is envisaged to last 1-year and will see an 8km stretch of the A11 carriageway reconstructed, repaired or maintained between Spooner Row and to Tuttles Interchange, in both directions.
The £60M scheme is part of National Highways’ nationwide drive to revitalise the country’s concrete roads, which account for around 4% (640km) of the trunk road network.
This particular stretch of the A11 was laid in the 1990s and has 45,000 vehicles a day using the route for social commutes or commercial purpose. The upgrade will simultaneously enhance safety while improving ride conditions and acoustic performance.
Utilising recycled materials within the road reconstruction, presents another good opportunity for Mick George Contracting to highlight their Environmental credentials. As leading Aggregate suppliers, the Group are well versed in such applications.
William East, Managing Director of Mick George Contracting commented: ‘We are delighted to be working with Morgan Sindall and National Highways to deliver this exciting project. Securing the project represents a strategic milestone for us, as we endeavour to further establish our services in East Anglian regions. Perhaps of more importance, it shows recognition of the quality works we’ve completed on other complex and sizeable Highway developments historically.’’
