Drainage works in the main public roads: main sewer connections

| Gerry Rowe

When working on the main public road in order to connect to the main sewer it is necessary to close the road. If not obvious this is for safety reasons for both workmen, car drivers and pedestrians alike. Space is required for manoeuvring machinery and workman need space to work. 

It is important in these situations, to make sure every detail is planned out and every resource that might be needed is on standby to avoid delays in workflow and in turn delays to the public. Stopping traffic is extremely costly so it is imperative to make sure you only do it for as long as necessary. 

Equipment transportation whilst working in the main public road

When this equipment scale is required, late delivery or a delivery that doesn’t arrive from a hire company until the next day can be costly. It can cause not only disruption to the schedule but a massive build-up of traffic on the main public road. The whole team's effect looking for other things to do can also be costly in more ways than one.

Having our hook loader ready with dumper truck and supplies is essential for the smooth running of a main sewer connection.

In today’s rapidly changing business environment, teams must react quickly if the need arises, especially when working in the main public road.

Our support driver is encouraged to feel he is carrying out an important role when he waits in the wings with his lorry loaded with three ton of one material and 10 ton of another material that may be urgently needed. 

Our manager is proactive and well aware of the savings when he beckons his driver and gets the materials within minutes. One phone call and our own industrial powerful tanker will arrive within the hour.
