We have been part of a number of Highway works over the years including major roadworks and large car park developments. Our expertise in this area has seen us become a preferred selected contractor for Gateshead Council. We have also undertaken Highway Works in other parts of the region too, including North Shields and Tyneside.


Sunderland Tyneside Council – Follingsby Lane, Washington 

The International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP) represents a unique opportunity for the automotive sector in the UK.   

Located on land to the north of the existing Nissan car manufacturing plant. 

South Tyneside Council in collaboration with Highways England and representatives from Nissan assessed the transport implications to the existing road network and forecast changes in traffic  following the introduction of the IAMP along the A1290 and Follingsby Lane.   

Follingsby Lane is a more rural road in nature and is a narrow single carriageway and its existing width is only just sufficient for two cars to pass, with a deteriorating road condition with unfavourable horizontal alignment and main carriageway and verge drainage. 

As a viable means of access to IAMP a considerable upgrade was undertaken and BCE Northern were appointed as Principal Contractors by South Tyneside Council.
