Construction work is progressing at Newcastle Great Park to deliver a 2.2km spine road, including the creation of Junctions 4-7. The new road will connect Wagonway Drive with Kingston Park Road via Brunton Lane.
Delivered by Esh’s civil engineering division on behalf of Newcastle Great Park Consortium – a joint venture between Taylor Wimpey Developments and Persimmon Homes plc – the scheme comprises the construction of three new roundabouts, one signalised junction and a 21m span bridge over the Ouseburn. Surface water drainage and attenuation systems will also be installed, including a balancing pond, culverts and drainage swales.
Since development started in 2001, Newcastle Great Park has emerged into a sustainable community and one of the most desirable places to live in the North East. Uniquely positioned in a rural setting just three miles from Newcastle City Centre and already boasting good transport connections, the new spine road will make the Great Park one of the most accessible locations in the North East.
The works involved the extension of the existing NETPark technology park within Durham, including the completion of a major new road system, a number of new access routes and a new roundabout off the A177.
Construction of a new T-junction off the A177 provides a new access point to the development through carriageway widening, alongside a second access road made from the existing stub end located North of the existing mini-roundabout off Joseph Swan Road.
Additional works included; the installation of two new lay-bys, streetlighting and an art installation positioned at the entrance.
All associated drainage works were completed, including the installation of 2 storage basins (SUDS ponds).
Completed across two phases, the project comprised the re-modelling of a one-way site entrance system to form a new two-way site entrance and exit.
Works included; excavations, road surfacing, drainage installation, footpath works, installation of security gates and boundary fencing. Site security and client HGV access was maintained at all times throughout the scheme.

Significant earthworks were completed, as well as other associated works including; installation and diversion of major utilities, installation of a new rising main and pumping station, surface water drainage systems, new drainage channels and new ducting for CCTV and power.
The scheme is part of a £21m upgrade to provide additional highway infrastructure and improvements which will promote and secure further expansion within the Enterprise Zone.
As part of the regeneration of Sunderland Port, the scheme was commissioned to restore the important access road and ensure current and future traffic flows could be accommodated.
Remedial works to the 3km Port perimeter road were completed, including an abundance of reinforced concrete road re-construction with concrete repairs to dilapidated areas. A new 350m carriageway was constructed to create a larger dock-site area for loading/offloading ships within the Port.
Works will ensure the Port maintains an efficient import/export approach and provide additional space for additional business operations.
Major repair works to two bridges are currently underway in Jarrow. The project will see the structural refurbishment of Albert Road and Kirkstone Avenue bridges, both approximately 2 miles apart.
Located on the A185 and spanning two Nexus metro lines and one Network Rail line, the Albert Road bridge was last refurbished in 1988. The 51-year-old structure will undergo strengthening works, concrete repairs, resurfacing, installation of new bridge joints, replacement parapets and full re-waterproofing of the bridge deck.
The Kirkstone Avenue footbridge spans the A19 south of the Lindisfarne roundabout. The footbridge will be lifted and removed from site to be fully refurbished, repaired and modified before being installed and re-opened later in the project.
On site works at Kirkstone Avenue will include replacement of the parapets as well as raising the level of the bridge above the A19 to enable removal of the existing limited headroom restrictions on the A19 slip roads.
Major realignment works were completed by Esh Civils on the second most congested road in Barnsley.
The improvements included the construction of two new roundabouts and traffic signals and a new direct link from the motorway onto the local road network.
The scheme objectives were to reduce the existing traffic congestion at the A61 Birdwell Roundabout, improve bus services and reduce journey times.
The existing Birdwell roundabout was re-constructed to increase capacity and improve connections with adjoining roads which supports both current and future forecasted traffic demands.
A major priority roundabout was constructed to the east adjacent the A6135 which enabled the inclusion of a link road to an additional second major roundabout adjacent the existing Rockingham roundabout.
A 160m link road was constructed between the two new roundabouts and 720m of road widening was completed to adjoining junctions, slip roads and dual carriageways.
Additional works included; earthworks, stabilisation of mining works, new footpaths, significant drainage installations, management of numerous service divisions, streetlighting and CCTV, hard and soft landscaping and white lining.
The project was completed across three phases to minimise disruption to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
The scheme comprises the construction of a new 2 lane on line roundabout located on the M181, immediately to the north of the Brumby Common Lane overbridge.
The development will ease congestion and provide access to 60 acres of adjacent land for commercial and residential development.
Works include; site clearance, fencing, road restraint systems, drainage comprising a culverted ditch, earthworks to form raise embankments, bituminous surfacing, kerbs, footways and paved areas, electrical work for road lighting and traffic signs, landscaping and ecology.
The scheme consisted of the construction of a new road, construction of a service yard, a block paved car park, alterations to an existing car park, and various areas of road and footpath surfacing.
The project comprised the construction of a new five arm roundabout to serve as an entrance to a retail development. Widening of an existing footway was completed to serve as a shared route for pedestrians and cyclists.
Esh’s civil engineering division is on site delivering Phase 3 of the Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor (SSTC3). The £40m SSTC3 project – which is being delivered on behalf of Sunderland City Council – will create a new 2.5km uninterrupted dual carriageway link to the Northern Spire bridge and the city centre.
SSTC3 comprises bulk earthworks, geotechnical engineering, road surfacing, new cycle and footways, drainage, security fencing and road restraint, drainage head walls and significant retaining structures. A new western entrance and manned security house will be created into the Pallion Shipyard site and existing highways which are impacted by the new Transport Corridor also require road widening, junction improvements roundabout improvements.
500 metres of retaining structures have been installed to date, making it one of the largest retaining structures on any UK highways scheme. The retaining structures were necessary to create space for the highway between the former Pallion Shipyard and the upper existing highway and Tyne & Wear Metro line, given a height difference of 20 metres separated the bordering land.
Benefits of the development include improved connectivity to the city centre, reduction of congestion and journey times, improvements in public transport, cycle and pedestrian routes, and improvement of the urban environment and road safety.
