Birse Civils wins road contract for Wrexham Industrial Estate

Yorkshire-based civil engineering company Birse Civils has been awarded the Wrexham Industrial Estate Access Road contract by Wrexham County Borough Council.

Wrexham Industrial Estate is one of the largest industrial estates in Wales, with more than 300 companies providing more than 7,000 jobs, but existing highway access is gained via unclassified roads and suffers from congestion.

The £13m design and build project, which is funded by Transport Grant from the Welsh Assembly Government, will improve access to Wrexham Industrial Estate by providing new and improved access roads to the north and south of the estate.

Work on the design will commence immediately, with construction works due to start in May 2011.
