By Catrin Jones31 May 2022

National Highways has selected the More JV, comprising Webuild (42.5% share), FCC Construcción, and BeMo Tunnelling, as its preferred contractor for the £1.25 billion (€1.5 billion) contract for the tunnel and main construction work for the A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down scheme past Stonehenge.

The main works contract covers the construction of the proposed tunnel’s civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and technology components, including the tunnel boring machine, along with the approach roadworks and structures and the environmental components of the five-year construction phase.

Derek Parody, National Highways’ project director for the A303 Stonehenge scheme, said, “The contract will only become live once the Secretary of State has concluded the planning process.

“The announcement of a preferred bidder in no way pre-empts any decision, and once that is finalised, and should the Development Consent Order be granted, having a contractor in place will put us in the strongest possible position to deliver this transformational scheme and deliver the benefits we know it can.”
