A6 toll road: a strategic route connecting Belfast to Londonderry 

With the construction of this section of road between Dungiven and Drumahoe, we are improving mobility in Northern Ireland.

Autovía A-6 entre las ciudades de Dungiven y Drumahoe (Irlanda del norte).

The project, awarded by Northern Ireland's Department of Infrastructure, included the design and construction of the road, which has an extension of 25 kilometers.

This stretch is part of the Northwest Transport Corridor that connects the metropolitan area of Belfast and the Northwest of the country. For its execution, the consortium, formed by Sacyr and Wills Bros, built 22 structures, including four new links and three roundabouts.

The main quantities of the project give a clear idea of its enormous scale: 4 million cubic meters of earth movement, 500,000 tons in semi-flexible pavement construction, and 50 kilometers of drainage systems.

These improvements ensure the comfort, viability, and safety of the more than 15,000 users who use the road daily. In addition to a significant time saving, reducing the journey by more than 10 minutes. Since the start of the contract, more than 600 professionals have collaborated in the success of the project.



Positive impact

The project has brought on multiple sustainable initiatives throughout construction. For example, 18 new underpasses for wildlife were built at multiple points of the road to ensure their safety. We have also planted over 750,000 trees in the surrounding areas of the project site.

The project has obtained the BREEAM certification thanks to the excellence of the sustainable initiatives carried out during the construction phase.

The BREEAM seal (formerly CEEQUAL) encourages and promotes the achievement of high economic, environmental, and social performance in all forms of civil engineering through the application of best social, environmental, and sustainable practices.

With this recognition, projects that go beyond the minimum legal, environmental, and social requirements to achieve distinctive environmental and social performance in the projects they carry out are rewarded.
