The 3Angle team worked closely with key stakeholders and local
communities in the redesign of the viaducts and public green spaces.

amphibians, bats and mammals living near the road.
3Angle is responsible for the 25-year management and maintenance period
of the widened A27 and A1 motorways until 2043.
