Consultant to carry out project and asset management, and cost analysis for North Wales Trunk Road Agency

Capita Symonds has been appointed to the NWTRA (North Wales Trunk Road Agency) engineering consultancy framework.

North Wales

NWTRA is a partnership of the six local authorities in North Wales; Isle of Anglesey CC, Conwy CBC, Denbighshire CC, Flintshire CC, Gwynedd Council and Wrexham CBC.

It is responsible to the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) for the management and maintenance of all trunk roads in North Wales.

Capita won a place on the three year framework after a competitive tendering process. Covering 20 service categories, the framework will be used by NWTRA but is also open to the local authority partners. Work includes project management, CDM co-ordination, asset management and cost analysis.

The firm (in the form of Travers Morgan and Symonds Group) was responsible for the design and construction of parts of the A55 North Wales Trunk Road in the 1980s and 1990s, including the major tunnels at Conwy, Penmaenmawr and Pen y Clip.
