SWH | Contracting division secures an £850,000 drainage scheme on the A38 at Wrangaton
SWH Contracting has recently commenced works on an £850,000 drainage remediation scheme on the A38 on behalf of Highways England.
The works are taking place between Marley Head and Wrangaton and programmed to run for a period of seven weeks. The aim behind the scheme is to prevent ongoing flooding issues that blight the stretch during periods of wet weather.
Works to be undertaken include drainage improvements, the installation of new gullies and drainage connections in two carriageway crossings, and improvements to the slip roads at either junction.
The works will be taking place under contraflow with a series of lane closures. To minimise disruption to commuter traffic, works will only take place at night, between 8pm and 4am on weekdays, with 24-hour working at weekends.
SWH’s Highways England Framework Manager, Mark Rands, said: “We’re really pleased to secure another contract with Highways England. We`ve successfully worked together on a number of projects now and hope we have demonstrated the effectiveness of smaller regional contractors working together to deliver challenging schemes safely and efficiently.”
