Strategic Transport Corridor Phase 3
Sunderland City Council used NEPO211 Civile Engineering & Infrastructure Works to appoint a contractor for a £35million project to improve Sunderland's road networks.
Durham-based Esh-Civils, the civil enginnering division of Esh Construction, were appointed to deliver the ambitious project.
The new road, which will improve community connections, is part of the £1.5billion package of city-wide public and private sector investment projects that Sunderland has planned.
The Strategic Transport Corridor project includes the construction of 1.2 miles of retaining walls and structures that will be nearly 12 metres high.
Social value commitments within this project include:
- Local employment and local supply chain usage
- Support for unemployed people
- Apprenticeships and staff development
- School engagement initiatives
