Engineers get message over to road users

Motorists on the A6 between Randalstown and Castledawson are to be reminded of the importance of civil engineering to daily lives.

The upgrade on the road has been chosen for a poster campaign by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), showing the public the positive impact of civil engineering

Around 18,000 users take the route every day, often leading to congestion. But the £160m upgrade by the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) aims to reduce journey times by around one-quarter.

ICE regional director Richard Kirk said "short and consistent" journey times could propel productivity. The work is being carried out by a joint venture of Graham and Farrans (GFJV).
