Wills Bros team wins £220m road scheme
March 29, 2018 – An Iberian-Irish consortium has landed one of the year’s biggest UK road construction contracts.
A consortium of Spanish contractor Sacyr and its Portuguese sister company Somague with Dublin-based Wills Bros Civil Engineering has been selected by the Northern Ireland Department for Infrastructure to construct the £220m A6 Dungiven to Drumahoe dualling scheme.
A 25.5km stretch of the A6 will be upgraded to dual carriageway. The scheme includes a bypass around Dungiven, with new roundabouts connecting the scheme to the existing road network at either end.
Work is expected to start within the next few weeks and take up to four years to complete.
