The company beat five other civil engineering firms to be appointed to the early contractor involvement.

The 2005 works cost estimate was approximately £76m.

Andrew Wyllie, chief executive of Costain, said: “This is another good project win and an extension of our strong position in the highways sector.”

Work is expected to start on site in 2008.
