Costain, the engineering solutions provider, is pleased to announce that it has secured a place on the Highways Agency’s five-year £5.0 billion Collaborative Delivery Framework, the largest ever framework for the improvement of England’s motorways and major A roads.
Costain is one of five organisations appointed to Lot 3b for major projects valued between £100 and £450 million. The total value of Lot 3b within the overall Framework is anticipated to be circa £3.0 billion.
The Framework will carry out critical infrastructure projects, expected to include the technology-led Smart Motorways programme, and complex schemes such as the A14 Cambridge to Huntington.
