This contract involved liaising with North Lanarkshire Council’s Road Engineers to include acceptable sight lines, acceleration lanes and to install a new pedestrian footpath and crossing. The new access road was required in advance of planning for the new yard. The yard will include heavy haulage trucks and so required consideration for safe entry and exit to the yard was required.

  • Deep excavation and Earth moving of 5 metres + depth soil to create acceptable levels to tie in with the existing main road

Due to the location of the site, there was significant traffic management involved including 2-way manned traffic light system and hard-barriered pedestrian route to ensure the safety of the general public and delineation from the works. We had permits for traffic management which meant we had time constraints which we worked within.

None of the job was sub-contracted. Operating as a small family-run contractor, excellent customer service is our number one priority. We pride ourselves on the quality of the work that we do and enjoy repeat business and referrals from our clients.
