Tidal Lagoon bosses have named this week a South Wales company as preferred bidder for one of the main civil engineering and construction packages.

The £25 million contract to provide ancillary civil engineering for the project's public realm works, which includes the breakwater surface, roads, slipways, utilities and landscaping, is to go to Abergavenny-based Alun Griffiths Ltd if the UK Government give the project the go-ahead later this month.

Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay Plc said the contract would be delivered by a local workforce and materials will also be sourced locally. Griffiths has already awarded a design engineering contract to Atkins' Swansea office and a landscape architect contract to TACP of Cardiff.
