Working alongside Graham in a JV, our team completed the design and construction of the A6 Randalstown to Castledawson Dualling Scheme. The project was 14.7km long dual carriageway, beginning at the western end of the Toome Bypass and ending at Castledawson Roundabout, with 8km of access roads.
The project was delivered in two phases. The first phase of the £135 million A6 scheme, delivered by the GRAHAM/Farrans joint venture (JV), was officially opened in September 2019 and the second in June 2021.
