The asphalt Team has recently been re-constructing a section of the M4 between junctions 46 and 48 in South Wales. The client had specified that the scheme be completed with pavers working in echelon (side by side) so as to eliminate a centre joint in the carriageway and to maximise the area being laid as the motorway was fully closed.
Jonathon Burton, Business Manager, commented: “We have just successfully completed the first phase of this works in seven night shifts with just over 5,000t of Binder and Surface Course, and all laid within the working window of 8 pm to 6 am.
Many thanks to Gary Money (Project Manager), Jon Legge (Site Manager) and all those involved at Wenvoe, Forest Wood, Logistics, Planning and all our sub-contractors.
We started the second phase on 5th Feb on the westbound carriageway. This ran for another six nights before we had a break in the programme for all the civils works to be completed, including bridge deck joint replacement, loop cutting and installation of road studs.”
