Galliford Try announced that its Infrastructure business has, in joint venture with Costain, been appointed as a delivery partner by Highways England for its Smart Motorways programme which is worth a total of £1.55 billion. The programme will see 292 extra lane miles added to motorways.

The Galliford Try and Costain joint venture has won a construction package including delivery of the M1 J19 to J16 Smart Motorway in Northamptonshire, starting this autumn at a value of £65 million. It has also been appointed to construct two future schemes: the M1 J24 to J25 in the East Midlands, and the M1 J13 to J16 in Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire. Both are expected to commence in 2016/17 at an estimated combined value of up to £302 million subject to the agreement of target costs.

Costain Group plc Announces Changes to Joint Venture with Santander in Spain

Costain Group plc announced that by mutual agreement with its joint venture partner, Santander, the net assets held by the non-core Costain-Santander joint venture in Spain are, subject to the fulfillment of certain conditions, to be reorganized and split equally between the parties (the reorganization). Upon completion of the reorganization, Santander will own the two pieces of development land currently held by the joint venture and will assume a portion of the outstanding debt of the joint venture. Costain will own the operating assets of the golf courses and the marina concession, and the associated smaller parcels of land and will retain the balance of the outstanding debt. The reorganization includes set-off provisions such that the net consideration payable by each of Costain and Santander will be zero and upon completion each of Costain and Santander will hold net assets representing 50% of the value of the joint venture. Costain will own 100% of its share of the assets. Following the completion of the reorganization, the Group's non-core activities in Spain will comprise the operation of leisure-based assets with a reduced exposure to land development. The reorganization is not expected to have any significant impact on the net assets or the reported earnings of the group. Completion of the reorganization is expected to take place by the end of September and is conditional upon: (i) certain necessary tax clearances in Spain; (ii) the registration of a complementary public deed confirming the joint venture's ownership of certain plots of real estate to be transferred to Santander; and (iii) there being no material adverse change in the joint venture prior to completion.
