Area 10 CWF Message Sign Renewal Works On Track

Works by our team to complete message sign renewals as part of Highways England’s Area 10 Asset Delivery suite of contracts in the North West of England, have attracted positive client feedback following completion of year two of the wider scheme.

Area 10 covers the North West of England including Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire and South Lancashire. The scheme is being delivered for client Highways England through close collaboration between selected delivery partners between 2019 and 2023.

One key project within Area 10 is the replacement of life expired motorway communication message signs. Completing these replacements involves the following upgrade works including site surveys, ducting, paving and the installation of new steps, handrails, chambers, cabinets and communications cabling. The project also requires new motorway communications controller equipment, electronic message sign replacements and associated gantry steelwork to modify pre-existing gantries.

McCann was chosen as principal contractor for the CWF signage renewals, with the responsibility for successfully coordinating all of the above works and ensuring the scheme is delivered safely, on time and within budget in accordance with CDM regulations. The total value of the works is £6m.

Our Contract Manager on Area 10, Andy Bates, is delighted with the progress made to date and takes great pride in McCann being Principal Contractor, working in close collaboration with a wide range of reputable peers.

“It is fantastic for McCann to be named in the role of Principal Contractor for this scheme by Highways England. It demonstrates the trust the client has in our capabilities, as well as our track record for working in collaboration with CWF and Supply Chain Partners to deliver safely, on time, within budget and to required specifications,”

“Our successful delivery ultimately enables Highways England to continue to meet and improve upon communication with its customers, so there is a real responsibility on us to perform in order to create a safe and reliable strategic road network for users.”

Tony Carey, Highways England Supervisor for Area 10, shared positive feedback on current progress as well as the high standard of work completed by the McCann team.

“McCann continues to deliver fantastic results – the standards on site are exceptional and anything highlighted is addressed without delay.”
