Road closures and diversions are disruptive for the travelling public and expensive to implement; with the whole country in lock down due to the COVI-19 pandemic the road was quieter than usual. This gave us the opportunity to delay the repair by four days, enabling the increased scope of work to be completed at the same time under a full road closure.
Utilisation of resources maximised the road space booking and in turn generated greater whole life value for the client without the need for an additional road closure. We were able to make cost savings for the client by combining the works. Planings were returned to the asphalt plant for use as RAP in future projects generating sustainability through recycling.
