M6 Junction 26 Orrell Interchange

Following GPL’s recent inclusion as a framework contractor on the Area 10 Assett Support Contract for the BBMMJV, the first scheme has been secured at the Orrell Interchange on the M6 motorway (Junction 26).

Orrell InterchangeThe overall contract sees the east roundabout remodeled with changes to the highways and ‘splitter islands’ and the widening of the A577 Orrell link road. The works include drainage and ductwork, kerbing and road construction.

Works will be undertaken day and night to achieve completion by 31st March 2015. These works are part of the ‘Pinch Point‘ schemes, part of the UK Governments growth initiative outlined in the Chancellor’s Autumn Budget Statement in 2011.

Widening works on the Orrell link road are complicated by the presence of old mine shafts which are currently capped by concrete slabs. Prior to GPL’s works the ground will be stabilised using grouting techniques by others.
