HIGH COMMENDATION: M25 MOTORWAY JUNCTIONS 12 TO 15 WIDENING & M25 SPUR ROAD STAGE 2, SURREY

BCI AWARDS - MAJOR PROJECT

Widening of the western side of London's orbital motorway was a fearsome task due to the incessant torrent of vehicles roaring through the site rather than any great topographical obstructions that had to be overcome.

The design-and-build team managed what was effectively an almost total reconstruction of the motorway, to a new vertical alignment, with less interruption to traffic than had been the norm before work began - and with a 25 per cent reduction in injurious road crashes.
