Mike said: “Jones Bros is a UK leader in highways projects and it was fantastic to share our insights and thoughts with Highways Magazine.

“We have worked, and are currently engaged, on a number of exciting projects, which have provided amazing training and development opportunities for our apprentices.

“Work on the A49 link road in Wigan and the Caernarfon and Bontnewydd Bypass is underway, with both schemes providing more opportunities for youngsters to start their career in the industry.”

Established in the 1950s, Jones Bros has a wealth of experience in highway schemes.

The company is now being run by the second and third generations of the founding family and employs more than 350 people. 

In addition to highways, it is currently working on contracts in various sectors including the construction of waste management facilities, renewable energy, and flood and marine defence projects across the UK.
