Tendering Starts for £60m A40 Upgrade in Pembrokeshire


The Welsh Government is looking for a contractor to carry out the design and construction of a 5km bypass around the village of Llanddewi Velfrey in Pembrokeshire.

The A40 runs through the village of Llanddewi Velfrey where there is a 40mph speed limit.

Under the planned early contractor involvement contract the selected design and build contractor will first work up detailed costings for a 2.5km carriageway to the north of the village and a 2.5km section of bypass to the west of Ffynnon Wood.

The new stretch of bypass would re-join the existing trunk road at Penblewin Rounabout. Arcadis is the employer’s agent supporting the Welsh Government to deliver the scheme. It is hoped construction will start in Spring 2018 for completion in 2020.
