Reconfiguration of a major roundabout on the A66 dual carraigeway trunk road to provide a through road across the centre of the roundabout. The roundabout remained in traffic and pedestrian use at all times and the project involved:
This section of the A66 is extremely busy with high levels of traffic and pedestrian footfall. We were not allowed to reduce the number of traffic lanes or close any of the footways during the daytime. We overcame this constraint by working night shift so that we could reduce traffic to a single lane and by constructing the works in smaller sections.
All removed topsoil, kerbs, flags, blacktop and concrete was crushed, screened and reused in the works, saving material, disposal and transport cost whilst also significantly reducing the carbon footprint of the project.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we took advantage of the quiet roads and low traffic flow to reschedule our work to deliver the project on time despite the additional social distancing and logistics constraints.
Despite the national COVID-19 pandemic, we delivered the scheme safely, on time and at optimal cost due to our ability to work flexibly and recycle as much material as possible.
We have always found DSD to be an extremely competent Contractor and this has again proved to be the case on the current project, Cargo Fleet lane. They have managed and undertaken the works in a conscientious, safe and professional manner and have received high praise from us and our Client
