Costain's activity levels stabilise after pandemic impact

On-site activities in London were more significantly impacted during lockdown, as the firm was forced to employ strict measures to ensure safe working conditions and travel. “Although the ongoing implications and impact of Covid-19 remain uncertain, we are pleased to be back working on site across substantially all of our operations,” the firm said in a statement, released ahead of its annual general meeting today. “The order book has further upside potential from some significant framework agreements including the Highways England Smart Motorway Alliance”, said Alex Vaughan, chief executive of Costain.
