Wigan link road completed

The A49 link road between the M6 and Wigan Town Centre has been completed.

Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK delivered the project for Wigan Council. It’s hoped the new road will ease congestion and improve air quality along current routes as well as boosting economic growth.

The project consisted of a new road and four bridges. Jones Bros made a point of working with local suppliers and hired three apprentices from the area, who are being kept on.

Jones Bros managing director John Dielhof said, “We are pleased our first major project for Wigan Council has been such a success. As well as delivering infrastructure that will benefit local people and visitors to the area, we are confident our work in the community will provide a lasting legacy. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank commuters for their patience during the works.”
