We are currently looking to recruit a Project Planner to join our A40 Llanddewi Velfrey to Redstone Cross road construction/highways project in Pembrokeshire.

The project consists of the construction a new off-line 6km carriageway. As well as the road construction works, there will be new structures: two precast bridges, multiple culverts, attenuation ponds, accommodation tracks and detrunking and active travel facilities. This is an ideal opportunity for a candidate with highways, structures, earthworks and drainage industry experience.

The project has commenced but has a significant term left, and then this position would then continue within the thriving Alun Griffiths Business within the South Wales region.
