Temporary road construction for specialist drainage contractor

The project

We were required to create access via a temporary road construction, through remote farmland after being contacted by one of the UK’s leading providers of specialist drainage and pipeline contracting services.

The local authorities had approached them to carry out a UV CIPP Liner with grouted annulus renovation activity. The aim was to enhance the structural and service condition of the culverted watercourse, running beneath the A40.

Our job was to create a temporary road construction which would allow all vehicles and equipment to access the watercourse safely to perform the necessary amendments.

The challenges and temporary road construction

This was a relatively large job across tricky terrain and our solution needed to remain in place for 8 weeks (about 2 months) to support the task.

In addition, our crews were operating near overhead power cables, measured at 7.16m high. We enabled our lock-off device to ensure our rear-mounted crane did not infringe on the safe working height.

For the temporary road construction, we installed 170 aluminium panels along with additional components and accessories to ensure ultimate safety and support. Our trackway solution supported the ground for the full project duration and enabled a successful job for all parties.
