Morrisons Supermarket, Barnsley

This project involved extensive highway works to accommodate a new supermarket within the town centre. Works carried out included the installation of 3 retaining walls, 2 public car parks, the removal of the main arterial roundabout, and extensive traffic signal works. The main challenge of this project was to ensure the safety of the public, as the main pedestrian thoroughfare to the town centre bisected the works. Extensive consultation between the contractors and highways staff helped to micro-phase the works to keep the traffic, pedestrians and construction teams safely apart. This positive and refreshing approach to working with all the stakeholders ensured completion ahead of schedule and also repeat town centre work for the Company.
