The scheme involved the resurfacing of the busy A594 Dearham main street in Cumbria for our client Balfour Beatty.
The works was carried out primarily at night through the village main street to avoid traffic disruption and our scope
of work included:
The road runs through the village of Dearham which has roadside parking for the residents. To complete the works, we had to liaise with the residents to relocate their cars during the night so that we could access the road surface. Additionally, we had to always maintain access to the adjacent petrol station which was open 24 hours per day.
The road was closed at night from 7pm to 6am and required us to work in closed proximity to housing. To minimise disruption to residents we planned our work so that noisy and dusty activities (e.g., planing) were carried out as much as possible before 11 pm each night. We also increased our resource levels by deploying additional gangs to work in parallel at each end of the street to shorten the project duration.
We successfully completed the project 1 day ahead of schedule to the satisfaction of our client and the residents.
