Driving efficiencies

We use our experience to help our customers drive efficiencies and, ultimately, reduce costs to meet government and local authority targets. We also bring the benefits of our expertise in sustainable construction and maintenance to the highways sector.

M1 Junction 19 improvements scheme

Our flagship contract is the M1 Junction 19 improvements. This is a complex remodeling project of an intersection of three major trunk roads, the M1, M6 and the A14.

Currently, junction 19 suffers from congestion and delays, especially at peak periods. The project helped improve safety and journey reliability, separating local traffic from long-distance traffic.

The scope of works covered the construction of direct free-flow links easing traffic movements at the intersections linking the M1, M6 and A14.

The junction was built on three levels, to a height similar to that of the existing junction. The scheme also improved local roads.

Highways maintenance

Our comprehensive highways maintenance service includes: planned and reactive maintenance, highway improvement schemes, winter maintenance, emergency response and horticulture management. Across the UK, we currently maintain over 11,100 miles of carriageways, 5,800 miles of footways and 9,500 structures.

Experienced highways contractor

We have more than 30 years’ experience of maintaining highways across the UK, and are able to draw on the company’s extensive global capability. Overseas, for example, Skanska is responsible for the operation and maintenance of parts of the Swedish road network. Teams work around the clock, every day of the year, providing winter maintenance, traffic control devices and signage, road maintenance, road sweeping and landscaping services.
