Senior Engineer in Lancashire-Preston, United Kingdom

Costain helps to improve peoples lives by deploying technology-based engineering solutions to meet urgent national needs across the UKs energy, water and transportation infrastructures.

The Preston Western Distributor Road is a new dual carriageway linking the M55 in the north to the A583 in the south.  The client Lancashire County Council (on behalf of the City Deal) is delivering the scheme to support the North West Preston strategic housing area accommodating over 5000 new houses. The new road also improves access to the strategic road network and the Enterprise Zone site at Warton and the Westinghouse Springfields site at Salwick.

The Preston Western Distributor is approximately 4.3km long with a new Junction 2 on the M55.  Other junctions along its length serve the new East West Link Road and the new Cottam Link Road, both part of the scheme.  The East West Link Road (3.4km) and Cottam Link Road (0.8km) are both single lane carriageways. The scheme will also provide the opportunity for enhanced pedestrian and cycle routes by providing segregated off-road shared cycleway/footway connections to residential areas as well as with the existing Guild Wheel Cycle Route.  The road also requires six major structures to be constructed, including two muti-span viaducts over the Lancaster Canal, Preston to Blackpool Railway and Savick Brook.

The scheme is due to commence in Q4 2019 for a period of 43 months.
