Parsons Brinckerhoff has won a Consultancy Services Framework contract for the South Wales Trunk Road Agency (SWTRA) to provide a range of specialist highway services across the heavily trafficked eastern region.

The framework will run for two years with annual extensions for a further two years.

Parsons Brinckerhoff will be engaged in the prioritisation of feasibility studies, highway maintenance and inspection activities along with the design of new improvement and upgrade projects.

Mike D’Alton, Parsons Brinckerhoff’s UK Director of Transportation and Highways, said: “We look forward to working with SWTRA on this important framework contract which we are particularly well positioned to deliver from our offices in Cardiff and Bristol.

“Running an efficient and safe highway network in south east Wales is critical for the regional and national economy and for ensuring the unimpeded flow of the millions of vehicles each year that use the M4 to travel between the economic hubs of south east Wales and England.”

SWTRA’s eastern region extends from the Severn Bridge Crossings through to Junction 32 of the M4 and northwards to include the southern Brecon Beacons and across to Abergavenny and Monmouth. It includes the M48, A48(M), A449, A4042, A446 and the A40.

Also included within the network are the strategically important M4 Brynglas tunnels at Newport. Significant work is needed to improve tunnel management systems and network resilience of these assets following their closure for an extended period due to fire in 2011.

Parsons Brinckerhoff’s contract will also be used by Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council for additional highways and transportation related work as required.
