It is the firm’s latest win on the £1.5bn Highways England scheme being run by the three joint ventures of Costain-Skanska, Balfour Beatty-Carillion and Atkins-CH2M Design.
Mick George has already landed a £16m contract for the supply of concrete for the main highway build.
David Bray, Highways England’s A14 Project Director stated: ‘’We’ve been using innovative ways of working to speed up construction, and we’ve done this while looking after the environment. This is evident in our drive to reduce and reuse our waste.’’
Mick George has committed to provide complimentary containers for all waste metal materials produced, charging only for the haulage.
Any proceeds gained from the sale of the recycled metals will go back to the scheme to become part of the A14 Community Fund, which supports local community projects.
Michael George, Contracts Director of Mick George Ltd said: ‘’The A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme has been long overdue and we are extremely excited about playing a key role in the scheme’s development and delivery.
“It is fantastic that Highways England recognise the strategic benefits of using local suppliers, adding significant value and benefits to the wider local economy and communities.’’
