The start of the Five Towns Project has been long awaited by fans, the public and contractors alike.
This £135 million investment in the Five Towns area will provide a new 10,000 capacity community stadium for Castleford Tigers, a country park with new wetlands and woodlands, food store and petrol filling station, and retail units suitable for major national retailers
Substantial planting, screening and land reformation will mitigate visual impact to local residents and provide pleasant walks for locals and visitors; an alternative to shopping.
Major highways improvements are also planned to create a new entrance to Castleford.
Although the major works do not commence until early 2018, Howard Civil Engineering have been awarded the enabling package to create safe entrances and accesses from the surrounding major roads onto site and also to install the 6m deep 300mm dia foul water drainage in advance of the main earthworks.
