Galliford Try seeks earthworks firms for £300m A47 upgrade

Aaron Morby 3 years ago

Galliford Try has gone out to public tender to find earthworks contractors for two dualling schemes as part of the planned £300m upgrade of the A47 in Norfolk.

As Highways England’s East Region Delivery Partner, the firm is seeking to get earthwork specialists on board for early contractor involvement to provide technical and commercial input into the detailed design phase and help formulate the budget and programme.

The first of the two projects is dualling of 3km of the A47 from Blofield to North Burlingham. This is due to start on site in late 2022 and will take around one and a half years to complete.

The other bigger dualling project will see 9km of new dual carriageway from Tuddenham to Easton.

This project is due to commence on site in early 2023 and will take around two years to complete.

It also involves building two new junctions and four new bridges.

Both dualling projects were recently submitted for Development Consent.
