Client: Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council
Duration: 7 days
Key works: Planing & Surfacing
The project saw us contracted to deliver highway and infrastructure works, as part of a DMBC scheme that will see the development of affordable new housing, to replace that previously demolished.
The location of the works required the setup of a road closure, with a stop-and-go traffic system maintained for the duration of our activities. The existing surface was planed off with the resulting planings transported to a local recycling plant, via the shortest available route, in order to minimise our emissions. We then laid a 20mm dense binder course and 40mm Stone Mastic Asphalt. A bondcoat was applied by tanker prior to the laying of the material. The contract was delivered in-budget and on-time.
In order to prevent the transmission of COVID-19, we maintained a strict rule of two persons per vehicle when travelling to and from site, whilst ensuring that the correct social distance was adhered to by staff and visitors at all times. Facemasks and hand sanitisers were in use throughout as part of our commitment to reducing the spread of the coronavirus.
