Danaher & Walsh (Civil Engineering) Ltd has been awarded a £10 million plus contract with Galliford Try –the biggest single order the company has ever received.  This reflects the growth of Danaher & Walsh and the strength and skill of our in-house delivery teams.

The project is ultimately for Leicestershire County Council to build the new North and East Melton Mowbray Distributor Road. The £115m scheme is funded by Leicestershire County Council, the UK government, and the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership.

The project provides a new corridor for the A606 around the north and east of Melton Mowbray, by building a new distributor road which reduces congestion in the town centre, accelerates housing delivery, and supports local economic growth.

Danaher & Walsh will be delivering civils packages across the scheme. The Project Team is in place headed up by Contract Manager Mark Hedges and Commercial Manager Scot Jerram.

Danaher & Walsh are due to start on site next week, 17 July 2023, and expect our element of the project to take two years to complete.

“Danaher & Walsh are delighted to have been awarded this contract and look forward to working collaboratively with Galliford Try and Leicestershire County Council to deliver a distributor road around Melton Mowbray and therefore a more pleasant environment in the town centre for the community to enjoy. Along with Galliford Try we will be working with key stakeholders within the community to ensure minimum disruption and maximum benefit to local people, as a result of the works.”Sean McCallion, Operations Director, Danaher & Walsh Civil Engineering Ltd.

Danaher & Walsh has been appointed by Via East Midlands to carry out urgent repair works to Lady Bay Bridge in Nottingham.

The historic bridge, which was originally built as a rail bridge, was damaged when a lorry crashed through its northern approach parapet in July, falling to the ground beneath the bridge.

The stricken bridge was initially closed for a week following the incident but, following a detailed engineer’s inspection, it was reopened with temporary traffic management to allow single lane traffic along the bridge.

Lady Bay Bridge is an absolutely critical component of Nottingham’s busy road network, as it forms one of just three crossings for road vehicles over the River Trent in the whole of Nottingham.

Danaher & Walsh was appointed and mobilised at short notice to carry out the vital repair works, enabling the bridge to be fully reopened with minimal downtime.

The works include carefully rebuilding decorative brickwork, the reinstallation and repair of giant coping stones, and installation of a length of new vehicle restraint barrier.

Nottingham City Council cabinet member for transport and environment Neil Clarke said: “Given the local heritage of the bridge, materials are being sourced which match the existing style. The parapet will also be rebuilt to replicate the previous design and wherever possible we’re reusing materials.

“This is an important route in and out of the city and following the accident we’re working really hard to get it reopened as soon as possible.”

The superstructure of the new pedestrian and cycle footbridge on Abbey Park Road in Leicester has been lifted into place, marking a major project milestone.

Danaher & Walsh was appointed by Leicester City Council to construct the new footbridge via the Maintenance of Highway Structures term contract.

The project is one of three separate schemes D&W is carrying out for Leicester City Council on Abbey Park Road, which together make up a major revamp of the busy route.

The new footbridge is situated parallel to the existing Grade-II listed Abbey Corner Bridge, which is being refurbished by Danaher & Walsh. In addition, D&W is carrying out major highway improvements to Abbey Park Road.

The new footbridge will provide a safe route for cyclists and pedestrians, bypassing the narrow existing bridge, which dates from 1878.

The steel superstructure was lifted into place in a technically and logistically challenging operation on Saturday 9th April, marking a major project milestone.

Danaher & Walsh Civil Engineering has recently secured £12m worth of new contracts across the Midlands and East Anglia.

The largest single contract award is from Pigeon Developments, for Section 278 highway works to open up a new development site just off the A14 at Wherstead near Ipswich.

Following on from the success of the Putney Road highway improvement scheme in Leicester, D&W has been appointed by Balfour Beatty to carry out major highway works in Coventry as part of the Air Quality Project.

The contract haul includes major works for Leicester City Council, procured via their Highways Framework. Highway works are to be undertaken on Abbey Park Road in the city, adjacent to two existing D&W bridge construction and refurbishment schemes.

Meanwhile, orders have been placed for works to pedestrianise St George’s Street near the city centre, and for environmental improvement works to Ottawa Road in the St Matthew’s area of the city.

Danaher & Walsh’s ongoing relationship with Milestone Infrastructure and Cambridgeshire County Council continues following the award of a further scheme of works on the A1307, this time at Hildersham.

D&W has been appointed by Homes England to carry out works at Ansty Park in Coventry to improve the infrastructure for bus services.

Following on from Section 278 works at a new petrol filling station in Market Deeping, Lincolnshire, Lindum Group has appointed D&W to undertake on-site works for the same project.

In addition, Danaher & Walsh has been appointed to Via East Midlands’ Partner Delivery Framework, which paves the way for the award of further contracts, supporting Via’s delivery across Nottinghamshire and beyond.

Speaking about the recent contract awards, Danaher & Walsh’s Commercial Director Ian Gilbert said: “We’re very pleased to have secured a significant level of forward workload across our Midlands and Eastern operational areas. We are appreciative that the majority is repeat business from our existing client base.

“In line with our business growth ambitions, we are targeting larger value contracts. We’re delighted that our valued clients continue to trust us to deliver schemes to the usual high standard.”
