“The Only Way is Essex”: Osborne Lands £1.6m Highways Deal

Osborne has been awarded the contract to improve an 800m section of the A176 between the Basildon University Hospital and Roundacre Roundabout in Basildon, Essex.

Awarded by Essex County Council and valued at £1.6m, the contract starts in September 2014 and will be completed within six months. 

The A176 will remain operational at all times, maintaining services to the hospital. The completed scheme will benefit from improvements to the junction layout, removal of the central reservation and widening to both north and southbound carriageways. In addition, traffic signals, signs, lighting and road markings will be renewed.

Jamie Harrison, Osborne Customer Programme Manager, said: “Osborne has a great deal of experience in carrying out projects without interrupting business as usual. Careful planning, continual progress monitoring, and maintaining a strong working relationship with the hospital, and surrounding communities, will ensure we deliver these works as efficiently as possible.”
