Skanska’s civil engineering operation has won a £12 million project to build the 5.6-km A6 Great Glen bypass in Leicester.

Awarded by the Highways Agency, the design and build contract will start this month with completion in autumn next year.

Skanska subsidiary company Cementation Foundations has the contract to carry out the piling for the structures. Project designer is Babtie Group.
