Our experience

in the Government planning regime led to the project going ahead

Working with the community

The project will employ up to 3,000 people, providing training and work opportunities for 100 local unemployed people. We also opened a visitor centre and held four exhibitions so residents could meet our team.

The Heysham to M6 Link road, known as the Bay Gateway, will provide the long-awaited connection from the M6 at Junction 34 to the Morecambe and Heysham peninsula. The link road was the first highway and local authority scheme to pass through the new planning regime for Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects under the Planning Act 2008. Our teams actively participated in the preparation of the application, public consultations, providing responses to representations and preparing the Consultation Report. Construction began in early 2014.

We have engaged with several local companies, and already taken on over 30 previously unemployed local people.
