Design, construction and upgrading of roads

With decades of experience in the design, construction, management and upgrading of roads, highways and motorways, Ramboll brings in-depth understanding of modern-day infrastructure projects. We appreciate how a road network fits into the broader infrastructure landscape, as well as the impacts on economic, environmental and social prosperity.

Our experience includes projects such as the extensive widening works on the M25 and M1, improvement works on A477 and A380, the provision of strategic sustainability advice to Highways England and the design of 95% of all gantries in the UK.

Road, highway and motorway services

We draw upon considerable expertise to provide a fully integrated service across all aspects of a road project.

  • Strategy and planning to asset management
  • Environmental management
  • Bridge, civil, ground, road, structural and traffic engineering

Health and safety, sustainability and joined-up thinking

Health, safety and sustainability are critical issues that form a natural part of our design process. They are considered from all angles, spanning build-ability, usability and maintainability. We measure success by how well not only our clients are served, but also road users, residents, communities and wider society. We deliver solutions that bring commercial advantage and safe, sustainable outcomes.

Hammersmith Flyover - Phase 2 refurbishment and strengthening (HFO2)

Phase 2 strengthening of the Hammersmith Flyover (HFO2), was a phenomenally complex £100m programme including innovative engineering solutions to install a full new prestress without removing the original. With 70,000 users every day on a key strategic route into London, the structure, which had been deteriorating due to significant corrosion, presented many technical, logistical, programme and political challenges.

A23/A232 Fiveways Croydon - Stage 3 - Concept Design

The ‘Fiveways’ scheme in Croydon aims to tackle congestion at the A23/A232 junction and surrounding network, improving it for all road users. It includes the Purley Way interchange, Fiveways Corner junction, and Waddon Station Bridge, and is important for the borough’s economic growth.
