WRG awards £7m waste infrastructure subcontract

Welsh civil engineering firm Jones Bros Ruthin has won £7 million contract to build waste infrastructure in Yorkshire as part of a two year deal. The work is part of a wider WRG tendering process to secure engineering contractors for all of its landfill site works.

Jones Bros Ruthin has opened an area office in Wakefield to co-ordinate the regional work. Under the deal, the company will construct three new landfill containment cells, including the installation of artificially engineered geological barriers, synthetic artificial sealing liners, and leachate draining systems.

Other planned work will involve extending the lining walls of two existing cells and capping projects on sites ready to be restored.  

Work has begun on the first cell construction at Welbeck where 100,000 cubic metres of earth will be excavated. Much of it will be processed and recycled and reused for the clay lining or as capping for other landfills.

Jones Bros contracts manager Andrew Aikman called the deal an important coup for the company.

Last year, the company worked on 20 landfill sites across UK, from Falkirk in Scotland, to Bristol in south west England.

Aikman said: We have 20 years experience in landfill cell construction. Jones Bros have all the required expertise in the field, a record that speaks for itself. This was something WRG recognised when awarding the contract.
