A477 Kilgetty bypass - stepaside junction
Client: WWTRA / Carmarthenshire County Council
Value: £2.2 million
Duration: 14 weeks
Completion: August 2004
The contract required Tarmac to reconstruct and resurface 5.6km of the A477 in South Carmarthenshire using ex-situ recycling techniques.
The A477 is the main traffic route to Pembroke Dock and comprised a 3km section of single carriageway with the remainder being either dual or an 112m wide three-lane carriageway. The works also included the addition of 1km of extra lane on the existing single carriageway approach to Kingsmoor roundabout, and alterations to both Kilgetty and Stepaside junctions.
Background to the Contract
Tarmac had completed two previous ex-situ recycling schemes on behalf of Carmarthenshire County Council (the WWTRA for the Welsh Assembly Transport Directorate), the A40 Groveland junction to Pwll Trap Junction and the A477 Castell Neli to Kilgetty in March 2002 and July 2003 respectively. The success of these schemes led to Carmarthenshire's selection of ex-situ recycling for the Kilgetty Bypass.
