We are looking for a Section Engineer who has a history of Roads experience. The Section Engineer will have good knowledge of specifications and testing regime relevant to Civil Engineering. A hands on approach to the commercial and planning aspects of the project is required. The Section Engineer will hold a relevant industry qualification (HND / HNC / BEng).

The road is currently a single carriageway and the scheme involves constructing a new westbound carriageway alongside to create a dual carriageway. The works required to be undertaken include;

  • Widening of existing embankments and cutting along westbound side of the existing A421
