Interserve Construction has been awarded a £2.4 million contract to deliver improvements on the A421, M1 and A5 in Bedfordshire.
Working on behalf of Highways England, the firm will be carrying out a package of works on the A421, the M1 at junction 13 and the A5 through Milton Keynes and Dunstable.
The work will involve road surface repairs, resurfacing, replacing and installing new signs, replacing road markings, upgrading lighting cables and installing new LED lighting heads.
Aran Nugent, service delivery team leader at Highways England, said: “The appointment of the contractors is a vital part of the delivery of improvements to some of our major roads in Bedfordshire. This scheme will make journeys better for local people by improving safety for the thousands of drivers that use these roads each day.”
Work is expected to start in the winter and will be completed early next year.
