Webuild has returned to the United Kingdom after more than a decade with a GBP 1.25 billion contract that it has won with consortium partners to improve the A303 trunk road and excavate a tunnel near Stonehenge between Amesbury and Berwick Down in southern England. The signing of the definitive contract comes after the Group and its partners were named preferred bidders in May. It entails building a near 13-kilometre dual carriageway with a 3.3-kilometre tunnel that will remove traffic that passes through the UNESCO World Heritage Site and return the landscape to something resembling its original setting.Commissioned by National Highways, the contract will be developed by the MORE consortium in which Webuild has a 42.5% stake, FCC Construcción 42.5% and BeMo Tunnelling UK 15%. Known as the A303 Stonehenge – Main Works Contract, it covers the construction of the proposed tunnel’s civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and technology components, including the tunnel-boring machine, along with the approach roadworks and structures and the environmental components. Construction is to last five years.
