The MORE consortium composed of Webuild (42.5%), FCC Construcción (42.5%) and BeMo Tunnelling UK (15%)  secured the A303 Stonehenge – Main Works Contract, value EUR1.5bn (GBP1.25-bn),  to improve the A303 trunk road and excavate a tunnel near Stonehenge between Amesbury and Berwick Down in southern England. The signing of the definitive contract comes after the Group and its partners were named preferred bidders in May.  

The contract entails building a near 13-km dual carriageway with a 3.3-km tunnel that will remove traffic that passes through the UNESCO World Heritage Site and return the landscape to something resembling its original setting. 

The contract covers the construction of the proposed tunnel’s civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and technology components, including the TBM, along with the approach roadworks and structures and the environmental components. Construction is to last five years.
