Hill and Smith agrees motorway contract

Infrastructure product supplier Hill and Smith has announced a £4m contract for the supply of gantries on the UK’s M1 motorway.

Through its subsidiary Varley and Gulliver, the company will design, manufacture and install more than 60 lightweight steel gantries for the Costain Carillion joint venture, which is delivering the M1 junction 10-13 upgrade. 

Hill and Smith has already installed 34km of its Varioguard temporary crash barrier on this project and will supply and install its Techspan variable message signage onto the Varley and Gulliver gantries.
