Kerb to Kerb service on A120 trunk road brings cost savings and accountability
Posted by Danny Corder on Wed 1st March 2017
LMS Highways and LMS Civil Solutions combined their highly experienced teams to bring a joined-up Kerb to Kerb service on the A120 in Essex in February.
Starting with LMS Civil Solution's highly-respected concrete bay replacement system to replace faulty slabs, the work took place over three nights.
Two slabs were extracted and replaced each night using our highly effective vacuum-lift system and a rapid-cure concrete solution was used allowing the road to be re-opened safely after each shift.
Thanks to our unique position in the market with our combined civils, highway maintenance and line marking experience we were then able to undertake fine milling, concrete joint seal and line marking work as part of a cost-saving joined up service for our main contractor customer, working on behalf of Highways England.
Commenting on the work, a client project manager remarked
"Having worked with the LMS Civil Solutions team previously on the A47 in Norfolk, we were delighted to find that their bay replacement process was an straightforward as it was in November with 2 bays replaced each evening allowing the A120 to be reopened at 5am each morning.
The ability of the company to finish the work without the need of separate contractors by providing their own fine milling, joint seal and lining gangs has made life considerably easier for us as well as attracting a great saving."
