£15million contract win for Keyline

Keyline has been awarded a £15 million contract by the A14 Integrated Delivery Team (a joint venture between Costain, Skanska, Balfour Beatty and Carillion) as part of the Highways England A14 upgrade between Cambridge and Huntingdon, creating two new jobs at the company’s branch in Peterborough and one at its Norwich branch.

Acting as the sole supply merchant for the A14 improvements, which will help to combat congestion and improve safety, Keyline will be responsible for delivering the required materials for the groundworks and channel drainage across the entire project.

As a result of the A14 project win, two new recruits will be working in the sales office and have been announced as Rachael Moore, who will be a senior sales coordinator at Keyline’s Peterborough branch, and Kieran Bell, who will be a sales office coordinator based in Norwich. They will be responsible for helping to fulfil and deliver materials to the 20 mile long site.

A further vacancy at Peterborough for a transit and yard worker is currently being recruited for, and is expected to be announced in due course.

Emma Ward, Head of National Sales, said:

“We are delighted to be part of the integrated team working on this major project with Highways England.

“The positive impact of the A14 improvements is already being recognised by the creation of three new jobs at our branches in Peterborough and Norwich. The completion of the A14 scheme will continue to create a positive legacy for local communities and businesses by connecting people, and enabling economic growth both regionally and nationally.”

The new A14 will be open to traffic by December 2020 with Keyline’s contract scheduled to end in April 2020.
