On behalf of many hundreds if not thousands of people I would like to wish you and all the guys who have worked on this major road project a very merry Christmas. When I have driven down the M6 to go either south on the M1 or east along the A14 I have more often than not seen the workforce working hard in all weathers. Their job cannot be easy in some of the awful weather conditions we are faced with. Please pass on my thanks to all concerned.
This project has improved the interchange beyond belief.

[I was] extremely impressed with the outstanding level of site safety observed, that covered all areas from operatives’ PPE, road user signage/protection, staff welfare to overall site cleanliness. An excellent discussion was had with your site supervisor who clearly lives to work (safely and effectively) and plainly instils this ethos in his team. In the many years I’ve been in the industry I don’t think I’ve come across a better site – well done to all involved.
