Galliford Try’s Highways business will join junction 42 of the M6 with the A595 at Newby West. 

The new road will also provide additional crossings of the River Caldew and River Petteril

Construction will include: 

  • Four roundabouts. 
  • Five cycle bridges.
  • Four road bridges along an 8 km stretch. 

Work is expected to begin in June 2023

The contract was awarded by Cumbria County Council, and will now be delivered by Cumberland Council

Full Scope 

The firm recently secured a £75 million Build-to-Rent project where they will deliver 249 homes in Brent Cross, North London. 

That deal was awarded by joint venture (JV) Related Argent and Invesco Real Estate as part of the Brent Cross Town regeneration scheme. 

The CSLR aims to boost economic growth in Carlisle and provide infrastructure for the new community at Cuthbert’s Garden Village. 

“The project will deliver a lasting social impact for the Cumbria community and we look forward to applying our capabilities in innovation, modern methods of construction and, importantly, carbon reduction, working with closely selected local supply chain partners on this much-anticipated scheme,” said David Lowery, managing for Galliford Try’s Highways
