Ramboll and Arup are the principal design partners for Taylor Woodrow who will be delivering a pipeline of projects from early design stages through to completion and handover.
The first scheme will be the A30 between Chiverton and Carland Cross, which remains the only stretch of single carriageway on the A30 between Camborne and the M5 at Exeter. The proposed A30 scheme, programmed to start in early 2020, will provide 14km of high quality rural, offline dual two-lane carriageways with the existing A30 being retained, de-trunked, and handed over to the local authority.
Mathew Riley, UK Managing Director at Ramboll commented, “We are very excited to bring our ideas and expertise to shape much needed critical infrastructure across the South West. Through our continued relationship with Taylor Woodrow and Arup, we will support Highways England in delivering solutions that serve well not only the road users, but also surrounding residents, communities and wider society.”
Peter Whitman, Taylor Woodrow’s Highways Sector Director said, “We are delighted to be awarded a place on the Regional Delivery Partnership which will build upon our work on the Collaborative Delivery Framework over the past 4 years, and bring valuable lessons learnt to this significant programme of works. It is an exciting prospect to be working with Highways England and the other Delivery Integration Partners.”
Section 4 of the M25 DBFO involved widening 25.8 km of dual 3-lane motorway to dual 4-lanes within the existing highway boundary, whist maintaining dual 3-lane operation. Design included upgraded junctions, controlled motorway infrastructure and overall improvements to the environmental, operational safety and maintenance provisions of the motorway.
The A477 road forms part of the Trans European Road Network (TERN), a strategic route linking mainland Europe with West Wales and Ireland. Ramboll was appointed transport and environmental consultant in an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) form of contract to design and deliver a £47m improvement scheme.
