A465 Sections 5&6 with Jacobs Engineering
March 13, 2016
Jacobs Engineering Group has been awarded a contract by the Welsh government to provide technical advisory services for the upgrade of sections 5 and 6 of the A465 with Enkom being named to carry out the Quantity Surveying element.
The scheme comprises on-line (i.e. built over part of the existing road) widening of approximately 16 kilometres of existing three lane carriageway to full dual carriageway standard, with a short off-line section (i.e. built away from the existing road) of some 1.5 kilometres at Hirwaun. It includes grade-separated junctions and major structures such as viaduct crossings of the Taff Fawr and Taff Fechan Valleys, and Nant Hir reservoir.
