The contractors who have been chosen to be major players in the project are the Lagan Construction Group and John Sisk & Son, who are both delighted to receive the £40-million contract for doing major repairs and improvements to the said roads.

 

The personal kudos of the Roads Minister

Even the Roads Minister, Andrew Jones, has shown his personal involvement and interest in this particular project. The Minister recently visited different areas in the north-east in order to see the progress being made on various projects, one of which is the widening of the A1 from Coal House to Metro Centre. Mr. Jones has also expressed positivity on the joint venture between Lagan Construction Group and John Sisk & Son, stating that schemes like the A19 and A1058 maintenance and improvement project are helping build the Northern Powerhouse and create additional opportunities for many individuals in different parts of the country.

Mr. Jones has also said that the choosing of these contractors plays an integral part in the actual project delivery, especially in North Tyneside. Once the project is finished, both local residents and visitors will have a much easier time traversing the roads and will also have the chance to apply for more jobs and have easy access to more leisure amenities and facilities and shops in the future. 

 

 

A joint venture and conglomeration that should work wonders

Highways England’s Asst. Project Manager and representative, Darlene Procter, also adds that the scheme will enhance the journey and travel time on the A19 because it will reduce congestion as well as augment the safety of several thousand drivers that drive through the area every day. Since the A19 plays a big role in linking the Tyne Tunnel Trading Estate, the Cobalt Business Park, the Silverlink Retail Park, and more, this is a necessary project in more ways than one.

In addition to being a vital link to the area, the project aims to improve the security and safety of cyclists and pedestrians by building two bridges which can be shared by both, right over the slip roads of the A1058.

For its own part, John Sisk & Son’s general manager, Mr. Wayne Metcalfe, is naturally excited, stating that they are very happy to work alongside Highways England and Lagan Construction Group in order to deliver this necessary improvement for the major road networks of the north-east as well as benefit the local area and other users of the road. Lagan Construction Group’s own representative, John Cunningham, who is also its operations director, adds that they are looking forward to producing and delivering a highly-relevant infrastructure programme and project for Highways England.
