M5 Junction 4a to 6 Smart Motorway

Working in joint venture with VINCI Construction Grands Projets and Balfour Beatty, we converted the M5 between Bromsgrove and Worcester into a smart motorway. 

The project was part of Highways England’s programme to upgrade and increase capacity of the existing motorway network to relieve congestion. 

It involved converting the hard shoulder into a permanent running lane, and introducing enhanced on-road technology to monitor traffic flow and vary the mandatory speed limits to keep traffic moving smoothly.
