Pell Frischmann is thrilled to announce that the Sowerby Gateway Junction Improvement Project has won the Yorkshire & the Humber John Smeaton Best Large Highways & Transportation Project Award by The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT). This award recognises the best large project valued over £1M.
Appointed by Taylor Wimpey as Principal Designers, Pell Frischmann was involved in the upgrade and reconfiguration of an existing two-movement junction, linking the A168 with B1448 to form a free-flowing intersection. This consisted of the construction of two new roundabouts and additional slip roads to improve connectivity, whilst also reducing travel time and improving safety within Thirsk and the surrounding areas.
As a multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy, this junction improvement project saw Pell Frischmann undertake a full design review, consisting of geometric, drainage, earthworks and lighting assessments. It also allowed the collaboration with partners such as Highways England and North Yorkshire County Council throughout the project, whilst providing technical support to ensure an effective delivery during the construction phase.
We are delighted to see the Sowerby Gateway Junction Improvement Project completed and the delivery team gain recognition for their excellent work.
