Dawnus wins £26m Walsall road scheme

29 Sep 14 Dawnus Construction has been awarded the contract for Walsall Council's £26m Darlaston highways improvement scheme.

The Swansea-based contractor, expanding its operations in the Midlands, will reconstruct Bentley Road South, Bentley Mill Way, build a new roundabout at Wallows Lane and widen the junction at Darlaston Road and Bescot Road, in what is known locally as the Brown Lion Junction.

The scheme will improve a number of routes near the M6 as part of the wider Black Country Enterprise Zone to bring in new business and create thousands of jobs.

Walsall Council's portfolio holder for environment and transport, Councillor Lee Jeavons, said: “The importance of this project, not just for Walsall but for the regional and strategic highway network cannot be underestimated. Better roads around the Black Country Enterprise Zone, which includes Darlaston is going to unlock land which can be used to create thousands of jobs and improve the operating environment for businesses in the area.

“We’re delighted to confirm the appointment of Dawnus Construction for the project and look forward to work starting within the next couple of weeks.”

Established in 2001, Dawnus has emerged as one of the fastest growing construction companies in the UK, turning over £206m last year.
