"I told them it was the break I needed to get me into full-time work.
"I've seen the project here change as it's gone on. It will be great in years to come to drive down this road and be able to tell my grandchildren, if I have any, that this is where I started out.
"Civil engineering projects are like that. You're creating something that will last and that is vital for people to live their lives.
