Western Gateway, Wrexham
The Western Gateway project was driven by Wrexham Council in partnership with other organisations to support the third phase of the development of Wrexham Technology Park, focusing on businesses that can drive the Wrexham economy. Burroughs acted as Principal Designer working for Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Limited on this design and build scheme to deliver primary infrastructure works.
Burroughs designed the highway works, new road junction, footpath improvements, drainage improvements and the integration of the cycleway. The Project Team has achieved a CEEQUAL Excellent Award for Best Practice in respect of the primary infrastructure.
The new highway provides improved vehicular access to and from the Technology Park and the hospital and leads to improved functioning of the A483 interchange. Environmental sustainability has been at the forefront of the project, with the inclusion of a new wildlife and recreation corridor to Wrexham town centre.
