Costain has been named as the contractor for the £85 million upgrade of the Highways Agency’s M53 Bidston Moss viaduct strengthening scheme.
Design work will start this month and last for about 15 months. Construction will start in summer 2010 and take around 20 months to complete.
Wirral Council and Merseytravel together will contribute up to £4.5 million of funding with the Government providing all further funding.
The scheme will involve major strengthening work to the existing viaduct at Junction 1 of the M53.
