VolkerHighways successfully completed a major infrastructure project, along the A339 in Newbury, on behalf of West Berkshire Council.
The project involved widening the A339 on both sides, between the Pinchington Lane Roundabout in Newbury and the entrance to the Household Waste Recycling Centre. Works also included the construction of a new traffic signal-controlled junction, connecting the A339 to the new Highwood Copse Primary School.
Works were part of VolkerHighways’ seven-year public realm contract with West Berkshire Council. Throughout the project, there were multiple engineering challenges, due to the large amount of utility apparatus, and it is thanks to high levels of collaboration between the business and the council that workable solutions were found.
